This is delicious! I haven't tried the Vanilla Sauce - I serve this with vanilla ice cream.
GRAMMA'S APPLE BREAD PUDDING
"Bread, raisins and apples are baked with eggs and cinnamon, then topped with a sweet, warm vanilla sauce in this comforting dish."
4 cups soft bread cubes (I lightly toast the bread first)
1/4 cup raisins (I omit this and use chopped pecans)
2 cups peeled and sliced apples (I use a little more)
1 cup brown sugar (I use dark brown)
1 3/4 cups milk (I use low fat)
1/4 cup margarine (I use butter)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
VANILLA SAUCE (I omit this)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 7x11 inch baking dish. (I use an 8x8).
2. In a large bowl, combine bread, raisins, and apples. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1 3/4 cups milk, and 1/4 cup margarine. Cook and stir until margarine is melted. Pour over bread mixture in bowl.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and eggs. Pour bread mixture into prepared dish, and pour egg mixture over bread.
4. Bake in preheated oven 40 to 50 minutes, or until center is set and apples are tender.
5. While pudding is baking, mix together sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 cup margarine in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat, and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Serve over bread pudding.
Yields: 8 servings
A balanced diet is equal parts of milk and dark chocolate.
