Bread Pudding:

  1. In a 9 x 13 baking dish, add the bread cubes, then the sauteed apples, making sure to scrape out all the delicious sugary cinnamon mix.
  2. Then pour the milk mixture over the bread and apples, and gently stir to ensure that all the ingredients are evenly distributed, and the bread is covered in the milk mixture.
  3. Let the dish sit for about 10 minutes so that the bread has a chance to absorb the milk/egg mixture.
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour, or until the pudding is puffed and firm in the centre.

Caramel Sauce:

  1. While the bread pudding is baking, you can make the caramel sauce that you will drizzle all over this delicious dish.
  2. In a sauce pan melt the butter, then add the brown sugar and cream.
  3. Stir over low heat until the sauce thickens.
  4. Set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Serve and Enjoy!
  6. Serve the apple bread pudding warm or cold, and drizzle it with the warm caramel sauce!
