Lemon Blackberry Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding Recipe

We’re still enjoying end-of-the-season fresh Oregon blackberries, but with this Lemon Blackberry Bread Pudding you can use frozen berries! Which makes it perfect for fall and holiday entertaining.

Oregon berries

What I love about cooking with Oregon berries is that we can buy them frozen during the off season. With almost every recipe that uses fresh, you can use frozen! They are so easy to cook with, and frozen actually tastes just as good as fresh.

Oregon is the ideal growing environment for berries: soil, air, water! I visited the fields a few years back and loved seeing firsthand that Oregon’s family farms grow exceptional, consistently high quality blackberries and raspberries.

Did you know that Oregon berries are picked at the peak of ripeness, and frozen within 24 hrs of being picked? This locks in a maximum taste, juiciness and nutrition.

Frozen berries year round

Frozen Oregon berries are available year round, so you can use just what you need, and save the rest for later, with maximum nutrition and taste!

Today’s dessert or breakfast casserole, Lemon Blackberry Bread Pudding, uses frozen blackberries, and oh my … the great flavor and color is locked right in!

Because it’s the end of the season, we garnished the dish with fresh berries and powdered sugar (but you can use frozen for the garnish).

If you’re looking for these brands, looks for:  Stahlbush Island Farm, Willamette Fruit Co, Columbia Fruit, Townsend Farms, and Sturm’s Berry Farm.

Enjoy, Friends!

Have you thought about hosting a fall brunch, or serving a hot bread pudding for a dinner party?
