Apple Bread Pudding

This was Sunday's dessert, as promised :) The food critic loves bread puddings, and they are a favorite dessert in our home in the winter. Any bread can be used, I have even used left over biscuits on occasion.


4 cups soft oatmeal-wheat bread
2 cups thinly sliced Northern Spy apples
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs, beaten

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 2 quart baking dish.

In a large bowl, combine bread, apples and raisins. In a small pot, combine brown sugar, milk and butter. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted. Pour over the bread mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in cinnamon, vanilla and eggs. Pour into greased baking dish.

Bake for 50 minutes or until center is set and the apples are tender.

Vanilla sauce:

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine first four ingredients in small pot. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to boil, stirring occasionally. Stir in vanilla. Serve over pudding.

Bread pudding was one of the few tasty dishes ever served at a hospital where I once worked.
