Apple Chocolate Chip Raisin Bread Pudding #Recipe

| October 3, 2014 | 37 Comments

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I am looking forward to celebrating this festive day with my family. I certainly have a lot to be thankful for as a mom, wife, and blogger starting with the amazing opportunity that I was given by Mom Central Canada to take part as a Gay Lea Foods Ambassador for a year. I am a little sadden that this is my last post for them as I have decided not to reapply as an Ambassador once again. It was a difficult decision to make, but I need to spend more quality time with my family for the months to come. Not too many people are aware that my son has been sick since February with a mysterious virus that has taken over his health and life, so until he has fully recovered, I will not be blogging as much.

I am blessed to have 2 amazing teenagers, an awesome loving husband, an extraordinary mother and step father as well as a caring father and step mother, notwithstanding my devoted in-laws and special friends. What else can I ask or be grateful for?!! I am already totally fulfilled in life!

Apple Chocolate Chip Raisin Bread Pudding 3

 

Our Thanksgiving dinner is a traditional one with relatives coming over and eating some turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, veggies and a salad. It’s the dessert that is unique from year to year. Sometimes, I will bake a pumpkin, apple, or lemon meringue pie or a cake, but this year it will be an Apple Chocolate Chip Raisin Bread Pudding. I love chocolate and apples, so I thought this would make a yummy sweet treat for a perfect family dessert!

This recipe is easy to make and can feed 6-8 people. Have your children help you make it for a more meaningful dish!

Enjoy!

 What will you be toasting over your scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner this year?
