Bread pudding is such a classic comfort food, but today I wanted to change it up and add apples to this classic dessert and make it an Apple Bread Pudding. I love bread pudding, it is perfect to make if you have extra bread hanging around that you haven't used and you only need one apple. I will be using a Granny Smith apple for this recipe because it holds the apple texture better but feel free to use what you have on hand. This bread pudding is perfect since it is still pretty chilly outside and the cinnamon and all spice really help make this a cozy feeling dessert. It is perfect to make over the weekend or if you are having over night guest because there isn't a lot of work that goes into it and the ingredients are really basic.
Some of the stuff I used for this recipe:
APPLE BREAD PUDDING
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons ground Allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
4 cups French bread cubes
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled cored and chopped
Preheat oven to 350° degrees F and grease 11x8 inch baking dish. Mix eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, butter, allspice, cinnamon and vanilla in large bowl until well blended.
Stir in bread cubes and chopped apple (optional: you can add chopped nuts and dried fruits of your choice). Allow mixture to rest at room temperature for an hour. Spread evenly into baking dish.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Top with powdered sugar and serve warm. Enjoy!
