Sweet-Tart with cheesecake texture/sourdough bread pudding all-in-one!

Honey-crisp apples and fresh cranberries inspired me to bake a bread pudding, with a touch of real maple syrup.

It's comfort food for this February day, when we are expecting a blizzard in New England.

How to Make Cranapple Ricotta Pudding

  1. Grease a 2 quart casserole, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice apples, chop cranberries. Cut crust off bread and cut bread into about 1/2 inch strips.
