In “Cooking up Comfort,” we’re walking you through all the classics, whether you want to curl up with soup on a rainy afternoon or bake something delicious to celebrate the weekend. This comforting pumpkin bread pudding from Heather Templeton of Heather’s Home Bakery uses Wolferman’s English muffins and Harry & David pumpkin butter.

As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, everyone wants to warm up with a little comfort food. I like serving cozy dinners like soup and chili, but sometimes I’m looking for something to satisfy my sweet tooth. That’s when I make a bread pudding, a traditional dessert that’s easy to put together and truly delectable to eat.

This year I chose to think outside the bread box by using Wolferman’s pumpkin spice signature English muffins. These add an extra seasonal flavor to this bread pudding, which makes it perfect for fall.

To start, cut the English muffins into cubes and spread them in a baking dish to make the base of the bread pudding. Spread them out evenly so the custard can soak into all the pieces.

I add Harry & David pumpkin butter to the custard for even more pumpkin flavor and a little extra sweetness. Whisk the pumpkin butter in with the milk, regular butter, and other custard ingredients for a taste of fall in every bite.

You can serve this for breakfast on a brisk fall morning, or with a scoop of ice cream for dessert. Even breakfast — we won’t hold it against you.
