Getting Ready for Christmas Breakfast…(Pumpkin Eggnog Bread Pudding and Spiced Cranberry Compote)
I think last year we hit on the perfect make-the-night-before, stick-in-the-oven-the-morning-of Christmas breakfast: Pumpkin Eggnog Bread Pudding. I definitely want to try it again. And I definitely want my husband to make it.
But I’ll still make the cranberry compote–this recipe in various forms is flying all over the internet, but this is what I’ll be doing:Spiced Cranberry Compote Recipe
In a small pan, combine:
- 12 oz. or so cranberries, frozen or fresh
- 1 tsp ground spices, either cinnamon and nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice or whatever sweet spice blend catches your fancy
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tsp. orange zest (opt) or a few drops orange extract
Heat at medium high just to simmer; heat a few minutes more over medium or just until berries start to burst and get all compote-y. Chill up to a few days. If you don’t eat it all over the bread pudding, toss some into oatmeal or make a spice cake or something.
I can’t wait…Thank you, Bakerlady!
