Autumn Sunday Dessert

Good morning from  Applejack Lane.  I found a new bread pudding recipe to try out last Sunday.  It is wonderful!  I've made it twice already-once for company and once for us.

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.

Caramel Sauce
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.)

Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane.

This sounds delicious and just perfect for fall. There's nothing better than the combination of caramel and apple.

Looks delicious, and easy to make! Bread pudding used to be a way to use up stale bread and other left overs - but your recipe puts a new spin on an old favorite!

Hi again Joan! Yes, Country Home closed and then came back with a summer issue for about ten bucks, followed by the Fall which is on newsstands now. Some duplication, but that's okay with me! Thanks for your visit!
