One of the ways you can get a leg up on your holiday dinner is to use your slow cooker. This recipe takes virtually a couple of minutes to prepare and makes a yummy side dish in place of stuffing or potatoes to complement your turkey or ham. It’s also great for a New Year’s Eve buffet.

Cranberry Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

1 loaf cubed day-old Pepperidge Farm caramel apple bread

2 cups milk

4 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup dried cranberries

Place cubed bread in slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, combine the next 6 ingredients, beating until smooth. Stir in cranberries. Pour mixture over bread, stirring gently to combine. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.

I'll have to dust off my crock pot for this one. I've never seen caramel apple bread and if I can't find it I think I'll use cinnamon raisen bread.


Kathy, Pepperidge Farm makes several different flavored bread varieties now in their Swirls line. I found them at ShopRite.
