Do you ever wonder what to do with your leftover cornbread? Yeah, me neither, until one day not long ago I looked inside my fridge and saw the mentioned leftover cornbread.  I didn’t want to throw it out because it was really tasty, but I didn’t feel like eating it as it was either. So I turned it into this delicious cornbread pudding! Custardy with hints of cinnamon and cardamom, pairs deliciously with whipped cream and fresh berries for a simple yet beautiful dessert. SO if you ever find yourself in the same predicament, here you go. You’re welcome 😉

I’ve never had or thought about making bread pudding with cornbread! I bet it’s wonderful. I might have to have syrup with mine, although your toppings look marvelous!

I love this kind of pudding and never had any with cornbread in it. What a great use of cornbread. I never have leftovers but I will now so I can make your pudding 🙂
