As a kid, bread pudding didn’t appeal to me. Soggy bread? No thanks! As I got older, I quickly changed my tune. I promise this Apple Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce will change yours too!
This is it, a simple but traditional dessert that you can make all fall and winter, especially for the holidays. Can’t you just picture a warm cozy fire, all of the family snuggled up in the living room with big bowls of warm Apple Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce? Everyone is joking about memories and stories from growing up, and you stop for just a moment to watch and listen, taking in every moment.
I love when you let yourself be totally present in the moment. Sometimes I think, please let me remember their little hands and giggles and paint this picture in my mind forever. When I serve my kids this homemade bread pudding and see their faces light up as they eat it, it makes my heart melt. Please let these moments last forever!
Traditional bread pudding usually uses raisins, but we chose to mix things up in this easy bread pudding recipe. Instead of raisins, we used sweet glazed apples and crunchy walnuts. If the apples didn’t have a glaze on them, I would have folded them in with the bread and custard. However, I chose not to for two reasons.
The apples with glaze become quite heavy and sink to the bottom of the custard, which leads to another problem, burned apples on the bottom.
Glazed apples also add more sugar and liquid to the custard which can lead to separation.
Besides the addition of these glazed apples, this is a fairly traditional bread pudding recipe that I think you and your family will love!
