Apple Bread Pudding

Apple Bread Pudding
(Serves 4-6)

4 C. day-old wheat bread cubes
2 C. peeled and sliced apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 3/4 C. milk
1/4 C. unsalted butter
1/2 C. brown sugar, loosely packed
2 T. maple syrup
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place bread cubes and apples in 8-inch glass baking dish (square or round); sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. In a small saucepan, combine milk, butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup; heat over low heat until butter melts. Pour milk mixture over bread and apples. In a small bowl, whisk the egg and vanilla; pour into baking dish. Bake 45 minutes. Serve warm.


(Bread pudding is frequently served with a vanilla or rum/brandy/bourbon sauce. I think a sauce makes it too rich, but if you’d like to try it, you can find multiple recipes by googling.)
