Apple Bread Pudding
Apple bread pudding is an easy fail-proof dessert to enjoy during colder months - made with french bread, a creamy custard and fresh apples!
Servings 9 servings
- ½ large loaf of crusty French bread about ½ lb
- 2 cups diced apple skin on (about 1 large apple)
- ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups milk
- ½ cup honey
- Zest of 1 orange
- ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Ice cream for serving
- Caramel sauce for serving
Grease 7 x 11” or 9 x 9” or 8 x 8” baking pan.
Cut bread into ¾” thick cubes and spread all over the baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the honey until smooth. Add the milk, zest, and spices. Whisk until combined.
Pour the custard mixture over the bread in the pan, moving as you pour so that all the bread gets covered. You can also put everything in a blender and blitz it until smooth.
Sprinkle the apple and walnuts over the bread and press down with a spatula.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or even as long as overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Remove the plastic wrap and bake the bread pudding for 35-45 minutes, depending on pan depth until lightly browned on top and all the custard is solid.
Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Great with ice cream or Greek yogurt for a lighter take.
Storage: Bread pudding can be covered and refrigerated for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 1 month. It can then be reheated in the oven at 300°F.
