Sticky Bread Pudding with Apples


What do you do when you have bread that is on the verge of getting too old and apples that are destined for the compost bin? Why it sounds like the makings of apple bread pudding to me! And it smells so delicious while it’s cooking, no one will ever know you’re salvaging food destined for disposal. lol!

Apples that have been sitting around too long…


Old bread that is drying out and no one else will eat…

There’s no measurements for this, so just follow through the photos and make your own adjustments and variations. You really can’t go wrong with bread pudding!

So let’s start by putting generous pats of butter at the bottom of your pan. I used a 9×9 in. square pyrex dish. You can either melt the butter or softhen and spread all over the bottom of your pan.

Peel, core and cut up your apples.

Spread the apples across the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with cinnamon.

If you like nuts, you can also sprinkle some on top of the apples.

Now get a cup or so of brown sugar (I only had light, but you can use dark brown sugar too) and sprinkle it all over the apples and nuts. This will caramelize into a gooey bottom for your pudding.

Now take your bread and tear it up over the apples and sugar. Since I was using a soft bread, I didn’t pre-soak it.

If you happen to use a hardier bread like a baguette though, I would recommend soaking it in the milk and egg mixture for 30 mins to an hour before pouring the mixture over the apples.

Mix together about 2 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of sugar and 4 eggs and pour over the bread.

Bake in 350 degrees F until it is fluffy and brown at the edges. About 45-55 mins.

It will collapse into itself a bit when it starts to cool, but that’s ok. Let it cool completely to get the gooeyness underneath to settle.

Just when you think you can’t stand waiting anymore, it will be cool enough to cut through and enjoy with a cup of coffee. Yumm! Just for added decadence, you can drizzle cream cheese frosting on top!

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.
