Sweet Cornbread Pudding

Let's catch up friends. I've been slowly working on the blog again after quite the hiatus the past few months. Life has been busy, but good. My two kiddos starting public school has been a big change to our routines. The kids love traditional school, but with public school has come all sorts of stomach bugs, fevers and fatigue for everyone in the house since school started in September. I am hoping it ends soon, but who can tell. Everyone is trying to get rest and recover, but it has been slow going.

As of late my degenerative eye disease seems to be getting worse, but I am doing the best I possibly can when it comes to photographing food. It is frustrating for sure when almost everything looks terribly blurry, but I am still able to make it work, which I am thankful for.

Behind the scenes at the blog I have been working on making improvements to older recipes, making print friendly options for recipes, as well as making improvements when pinning my posts to Pinterest. (Do you follow my pins on Pinterest yet? You should!)

I've also been planning out all that I'd like to bake for my favorite time of year, Christmas! There should be a whole lot more posting the next two months as I ease back into the blogging groove. Until then, please enjoy this tasty Sweet Cornbread Pudding.

Sweet Cornbread Pudding tastes a lot like a traditional bread pudding, owing to the eggs, milk, and vanilla goodness. The texture is a little different for sure, and it has that nice cornbread taste to it as well. This recipe uses day or two day old cornbread, which makes it easy and quick to put together.

For my sweet cornbread recipe, I used this recipe for Sweet Cornbread Cake at Allrecipes.  I loved the way it turned out and it went perfectly with a beanless chili. As delicious as it was, after three days of the same food you start to get sick of it. Hence this tasty Cornbread Pudding.

The Sweet Cornbread Cake recipe made a 9x13" pan, and I used somewhere in between 1/4 and 1/3 of the pan to make this pudding. Crumble up the pieces and you are all set to make this recipe. Enjoy!
