Cinnamon-Apple Bread Pudding With Hot Caramel Sauce
1 loaf cinnamon swirl bread, cubed-I used Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread
2 cups milk
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup applesauce
1 cup sugar
2 T. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 cup butter melted and cooled
Place bread cubes in a bowl and add milk to soak. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, applesauce, sugar, vanilla, and spices. Drizzle the melted butter over the bread and toss. Add egg mixture to the bread and stir well. Let stand 10 minutes. Place in a buttered 13 x 9 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool.
18 oz. container of caramel apple dip_ I used Marzetti's Caramel Apple Dip
1/4 cup Half and Half
Cook over low heat until warm and smooth. Add more Half and Half if it is too thick. (I used about half of the caramel apple dip for each time I made the bread pudding.)
