Apple Bread Pudding
Sometimes I think my favorite thing about fall is the desserts. I mean, who can resist all the apple, pumpkin, and other flavors of the season??
Not me, so yesterday while in the kitchen, I made one of my very favorite desserts, Apple Bread Pudding. I love making bread puddings of all kinds, and apple flavor is one of my grandchildren's favorites.
And of course, that vanilla bean ice cream on top of it is a little piece of heaven.
Making bread pudding is so easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your fridge and pantry.
Adding an apple to the basic recipe, will make your kitchen smell delicious. The mix of apple and cinnamon coming out of the oven is one of my favorite fall scents.
I usually make bread pudding in a casserole dish. But I found these cute heart shaped baking dishes at less than half-off at World Market. I couldn't resist them!
Recipe for Apple Bread Pudding:
6 cups stale bread, torn into bite sized pieces
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup of chopped apple pieces
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter a 9x9 glass baking dish, or 6 ramekins.
Put bread pieces in medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Add the mixture to the bread. Mix together well. Add chopped apples.
Mix apples into bread mixture. Let this sit for half an hour, giving the bread a chance to absorb all the milk.
Place bread mixture in glass baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes, or until top is golden brown, and knife inserted into center comes out clean.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
I originally posted this last October, and it's truly one of my all-time favorite fall desserts, so I thought I'd share it again.
