Door County Cheery Cherry/Peach Bread Pudding

"Door County Cheery Cherry/Peach Bread Pudding uses Wisconsin Proud ingredients, such as butter, eggs, Door County cherries, and cream. Every year during the Door County Scottie Dog Rally, my daughter and I eat at a well known restaurant that features a breakfast item with a cherry/peach combination. Bread pudding is a family favorite and I had just enjoyed a cup of the new flavor Frosted Cinnamon Buns coffee. An inspiration struck, and we can now enjoy a taste of Door County all year round."
