Bread pudding is a beloved dessert and this Pear and Cranberry Bread Pudding recipe kicks it up a notch. The bread pudding recipe is filled with fall flavors from the cranberries to the cinnamon; there is even a sprinkle of nutmeg. The pears and cranberry complement each other excellently to create a wonderful dessert. This bread pudding recipe is made with Hawaiian bread, giving it an even sweeter element. 

The bread pudding comes out of the oven the perfect mix of gooey and fluffy. Each bite has a little bit of texture from the fruits. This dessert recipe is great for serving at a holiday brunch or even at Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone will love the unique addition of pears and cranberries to the bread pudding.
