Momma Told Me: Bake the season.

Growing up in Southern California there were no immediate changing of the seasons. By the time it started to get a bit brisk outside 2 of the 3 major holidays had already passed. And, even then, it was hard to take note of these changes when the roads are lined with palm trees (leafing is minimal, to say the least) and a dismal day of weather consists of a few hours rain, on a bad day. Yes, the sun is never far away, and that can make it pretty hard to get in a seasonal mood. If you're suffering from 'seasonal displacement,' as I like to call it, one more Pumpkin Spice coffee beverage might not be enough to really bring the season's joy to your home and heart. And that, my friends, is why I not only stock up on seasonal flavors, I bake with them, often.

Yoplait Greek, and other varieties of, yogurt is a staple in our fridge- Whether I'm reaching for a cup to unwind at the end of a long day, or planning my next culinary creation, it's a must. Not only does the substitution of Greek Yogurt in everyday recipes help me out in a pinch when I've forgotten to re-stock on staple ingredients, but it's often a lower calorie alternative to ingredients such as butter and heavy cream. So, when I spotted the seasonal flavors of Yoplait yogurt on the shelf at my local Walmart, I knew I had to hoard stock up on Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Pumpkin Cheesecake, Yoplait Light Pumpkin Pie, Yoplait Original Apple Crisp, and Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple.

While we're not quite to November yet the hustle and bustle of shoppers at Walmart easily put in the holiday mood. In fact, I ran into my league-mate while in line at the checkout and they're the one who gave me the idea for today's wonderful recipe- Caramel Apple Bread Pudding! There couldn't be a better comfort food recipe for Greek Yogurt- warm, gooey, and fluffy with it's custard base. This slow cooking treat is perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast with Yoplait Greek 100, or solo as an after dinner treat.

Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple from Walmart has just 100 calorie per cup, and a light natural flavor that is enhanced by real bits of apple. I loved how the somewhat sour taste of greek yogurt played with the light cinnamon sweet of caramel apple. Neither component was too overwhelming and the texture was perfect for my heavy cream substitute in the recipe! 2 (single serve) cups of Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple replaced 1/2 C of heavy cream and 1/2 C of milk, significantly cutting the calories per serving, and offering this bread pudding a lighter, fluffier end product.
Bread pudding is the perfect seasonal recipe because it's a comfort food that can be prepared over time and slow cooked with ingredients most have laying around their kitchen. For this particular recipe, if you don't have caramel on hand, you can also slow simmer a can of condensed milk (in the can) for 2-3 hours. The result is a thick caramel like dulce de leche that requires minimal effort and skill!

Caramel apples actually remind me of my childhood holiday visits to Massachusetts in the Fall, when we would drive out to the apple orchards in Connecticut to drink fresh milled cider and pick our own apples for candying. There was always something so magical about seeing the rows of trees in the orchards, and the fresh pies lined up on the farmhouse bakery case- to me, that is Fall, and these are the memories I bake with when bringing the holidays, and seasons, into my home.

1/2 TSP Salt
1 TSP Coarse Sea Salt
 3/4 C Caramel Sauce
