Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Warm, soft, gooey, decadent.  These are all things I look for in desserts in the winter.  Something comforting.  Something to combat the cold winter weather.  Something like bread pudding.  It really doesn’t get warmer, softer, gooey-er, or more decadent than bread pudding.

I love the idea of bread pudding, but so often it is disappointing.  I am happy to report that after one bite of this, I could. Not. Stop. Eating. It.  Seriously, it was a major problem.  I had to give it away to my neighbors to get it out of the house.  I started with challah bread from the amazing Avalon Bakery in Detroit.  I had never been there before, but it is such a great little bakery full of tons of amazing looking treats.  The braided apple raisin coffee cake was a huge hit as was the orange cranberry bread, but the challah really shined in this bread pudding.

It was perfect to soak up the super-rich and eggy custard, enhanced with spices, vanilla, and bourbon.  Apples add a little texture.  Then I drizzled it with my favorite caramel sauce.  It was simply awesome, especially warm out of the oven with warm caramel heaped over it.

Speaking of eggs, this is another recipe I developed for Davidson’s Safest Choice Pasteurized Eggs.  They are so perfect for this recipe because then it’s okay if the custard isn’t all the way set.  So please head over to their site for the blog post and recipe.  You definitely want to make Caramel Apple Bread Pudding this holiday season.

    This look fantastic! I have a slight obsession for all things apple and cinnamon. I love the idea of using caramel sauce to top it!

      Thank you, Heather, and thanks for visiting :) I love apples and cinnamon too, but it is the caramel that really makes this special.

  4. Oooh this looks like a bread pudding that Michael would esp. love!

  5. Caramel and apples – lovely combination! Makes me want to make this, because I don’t have any desserts in my house right now.

    • Laura says:

      Yes, anything caramel and apples is high on my list of favorite desserts. You should totally make this, Julia. I can’t imagine a house without any desserts. I always have waaaaay to many in my house.

      Thank you so much! I tried to make the plate look pretty but didn’t notice the design until I was editing the photos. It was a very pleasant surprise.

  7. caramel & apple – one of the absolute BEST flavor combinations I know. Laura, this looks incredible and I haven’t made or even had brea pudding in ages! This is the flavor I would choose, no doubt. LOVE all the caramel sauce decorated on top. :)

    • Laura says:

      Thanks, Sally! Caramel and apple is for sure an amazing flavor combination. Bread pudding is so often over looked, but it so easy to make and can be prepared a little ahead of time.

  8. Looks Delicious. I have just recently discovered that I love bread pudding. As a child I shied away from it because whenever a waitor would recommend the bread pudding, my father would always say- Why would I want to eat soggy bread? But it turns out soggy bread can taste really good!

    • Laura says:

      Thanks, Christin, and thanks for visiting :) That’s so funny that your father would think of it as soggy bread. I hadn’t thought of that, but it is quite accurate. It can taste amazing, though, with the right flavors, and of course, tons of sauce.
