    Bread pudding is increasingly commonly served at fine dining restaurants, and it is sometimes made using specialty bread and fresh fruit. Instead of water, cooks use milk, cream, eggs, vanilla, and spices to produce a creamy custard. To make the bread pudding even more decadent, a ladle of rich and creamy sauce flavored with whiskey, rum, or vanilla is poured over it.

     

    Bread pudding is a Southern specialty. Sweetened condensed milk and chopped canned peaches are used to make this tasty and straightforward peach bread pudding. You can serve this bread pudding with a caramel or butterscotch sauce.

     

    The importance of using high-quality bread in this recipe cannot be overstated. You may make this with day-old French bread, thick brioche bread, rolls, or challah. These are all fantastic options.

     

    You may use canned chopped apricots for canned peaches. You may also add apricots to the peaches to give the dessert a slightly different flavor profile.
