Apple Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce
Happy holidays Kendall-Jackson friends! It's Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life Blog here to share a delicious holiday recipe with you! I've made an Apple Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce, and it is divine — SO, so delicious. But what I really love about this recipe is that you can make it for brunch or serve it as a dessert. It would be great for Christmas morning brunch!
Bread puddings are so rich and creamy, making them delicious as a stand alone dish, but adding tart apples to the mix takes this recipe to the next level. I used Granny Smith apples in this bread pudding because they hold their shape best so you can have an apple in almost every bite. Before I added the apples to the bread pudding mix, I sauteed them for a few minutes in butter and cinnamon. I just wanted to soften the apples and bring out their full flavour — and it worked. What you end up with is a creamy, sweet pudding, with bites of apples, raisins and loads of cinnamon flavour.
But one of the BEST parts of this dish, is the caramel sauce that you drizzle all over the top. A rich, creamy, delicious caramel sauce that is the perfect match for apple bread pudding. It's a must — you must add a ton of it!
See, just look at that caramel sauce sweetly covering all those scrumptious bites of bread pudding — YUM!
As I mentioned before, this Apple Bread Pudding is versatile enough that, if you choose, you can have it for dessert or you can serve it for breakfast. It would be especially delicious for Christmas morning brunch because it can easily serve a crowd! Serve it with the caramel sauce instead of syrup and, as a special holiday treat, enjoy it with a glass of Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay — perfection!
