SPICED PINEAPPLE BREAD PUDDING
This warm and cozy Spiced Pineapple Bread Pudding is perfect for the holidays or any time you’re craving a comforting dessert. Fluffy pieces of bread are coated in a cinnamon custard-like mixture with sweet pineapple chunks layered at the bottom, making it the most delightful combination!
I love how easy this delectable dessert comes together; it tastes like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen when in reality, this Bread Pudding only takes about 10 minutes! Even shopping at my local Safeway for these ingredients was a breeze!
Pineapple Bread Pudding is packed with flavor all thanks to McCormick® Ground Cinnamon, McCormick® All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract, Land O Lakes® Salted Butter in Half-Sticks and Del Monte® Deluxe Gold® Pineapple Chunks. I purchased all the ingredients for this recipe at my local Safeway grocery store. I enjoy shopping at Safeway because they have everything I need and it’s always so convenient even when I’m in a rush!
The sweet pineapple chunks make this bread pudding extra special and add the perfect amount of sweetness. This dessert resembles a pineapple upside down cake and tastes like a bread pudding with a fruity twist.
The juicy Del Monte® Deluxe Gold® Pineapple chunks are extra sweet with no added sugar and naturally has twice the vitamin C. This sweet pineapple is the perfect addition to this bread pudding recipe! The warm flavors of the bread pudding pairs deliciously with the fruity pineapple flavors.
This bread pudding has a hint of spice that makes this dessert extra decadent. The spice and flavors come from“McCormick® Ground Cinnamon and McCormick® All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract! McCormick has been around for over 130 years, and offers a vast array of herbs, spices, and seasonings that create memories in recipes and in the kitchen.
I love using the Land O Lakes® Butter in Half-Sticks especially for this bread pudding recipe because it’s the perfect size! These half-sticks are great for small-batch baking or cooking for two. Land O Lakes® Butter in Half-Sticks brings the pure and sweet cream taste in a pre-measured stick. I also love how the wrapped half-sticks keep the butter tasting fresher longer which is ideal for any recipe.
The fruity pineapple chunks give this bread pudding a sweet and fun surprise! You can also add the pineapple chunks on top of the bread pudding or add it to the bread mixture.
RECIPE TIPS AND VARIATIONS
This Pineapple Bread Pudding is delicious just as it is. If you’re looking to take it to the next level, check out these tips:
- Try an icing drizzle on top. You can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream with cinnamon.
- Any bread will work for this recipe. Some favorites to use are brioche bread, sliced wheat, sliced French bread and baguette. This is a great way to use up old bread because the bread will soak up the custard mixture and become moist again. Chopped nuts, raisins, shredded coconut and chocolate chips make a great addition to this bread pudding.
