Apple Bread Pudding

Yum
Pumpkin recipes are around the corner, but there is still time to share one more apple recipe.
Bread pudding is such an easy dessert to throw together, yet makes a big impact.  It's perfect for those chilly evenings and this bread pudding is no exception!  I had some extra apples and threw them into this bread pudding to make one heck of a dessert!



Ingredients:
4 cups soft bread cubes
2 cups chopped Granny Smith apples
1 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a bread pan.
In a large bowl, mix the bread cubes and the chopped apple pieces.
In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, milk and butter.  Cook over medium heat until the butter has melted.  Pour over the bread mixture.  Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Stir in cinnamon, vanilla and beaten eggs.  Pour entire mixture into the greased bread pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until bread pudding is set.  Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.  Serve with ice cream and an additional dash of cinnamon.

Store in the refrigerator.




The aroma while baking is delightful!  I think Fall has arrived in your kitchen!  Served warm with some ice cream and a dash of cinnamon...one heck of a dessert!  Bread pudding has been around for ages and now you know why.  It is simple, yet delicious.  
Using apples totally makes this bread pudding a seasonal must have!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
