How to make it

  • Peel, core, and roughly chop the Granny Smith apples.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the apple and cook 2-3 minutes, or until tender. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° and butter a 13x9 baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, raisins and nuts.
  • Add the bread cubes and toss to coat. Let soak 15-20 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake 35-40 minutes, or until firm and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Bourbon Maple Syrup Sauce - In a heat-proof bowl, whisk the egg and sugar until light. Set the bowl over a saucepan of slowly simmering water. Whisk constantly until warm and fluffy. Whisk in the butter. Whisk in the maple syrup and the bourbon and serve immediately.

    Thanks! If I'm in a more decadent mood, I'll put a little more butter in it. I wonder how this would be with a sweet bread like challah. Hmm....

    I think it's the apples in this that makes it appealing to those of us that aren't huge bread pudding fans - kind of like mixing an apple crisp/pie with bread pudding.

    I do not care for bread pudding but the hubby is a HUGE fan of it. I have got to make this one for him. It does sound good!

    I never thought I would like bread pudding until I tried the one at the coffee house. I think they had a vanilla-bourbon cream sauce that they used with theirs - I'll have to find a comparable sauce recipe as an alternate for this.
