Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

This recipe is a fall favorite in our household and makes the house smell amazing. It’s been getting colder here and I’m starting to break out the fall wardrobe. I love this time of year but also dread it because it also means winter is around the corner. Boo!

When the crisp air hits, the apple baking begins. I’m usually in the kitchen making this recipe along with Apple Pie Roll Ups, Apple Spice Cake and Apple Crisp Slices while enjoying a glass of apple cider. The best part of this recipe is that you can enjoy any time of year but is also great for Christmas morning.

5 cups cubed bread

2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons apple pie spice, plus additional
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
4 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar

How to Make Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the butter and melt.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of the apple pie spice.

Once the butter is hot, add the apples and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the heavy cream, milk, eggs, white sugar, vanilla extract and remaining 2 teaspoons apple pie spice.

Stir together the bread crumbs and apples in a 9” x 16” casserole dish. Pour the heavy cream mixture over the bread crumbs and stir to combine. Top with additional apple pie spice, optional.

Cover the casserole dish with tinfoil and bake for 30-45 minutes. Remove the tinfoil for the last 10 minutes of baking. (Bake for less time if you desire a “soggy” bread pudding.)

Serve with ice cream and caramel sundae sauce.
