Preheat 350°F oven
Remove from heat.
The sugar may be eliminated from this recipe if your apples are sweet enough to stand alone.
Add a dash of apple juice, pear juice, or pineapple juice to the mix before baking to bring out the flavor even more!
Serve with vanilla ice cream or top with vanilla yogurt for a smooth sweet treat.
Try adding finely chopped nuts between the apple-bread layers before cooking to add protein and crunch to the pudding.
Drizzle the top of the finished pudding with caramel, chocolate, any fruit sauce or jelly for a decadent dessert.
Pudding For One!
Other fruits, frozen or fresh, may be added to the recipe or substituted for the apples. Try apples, raisins, and raspberries!
Soy milk, rice milk, powdered milk, canned milk... all may be used in place of, or in addition to, the Half & Half and milk called for in this baked pudding recipe.
Leftovers are easily heated, covered with a paper towel, in the microwave. Pudding is also a great cold leftover food.
Slices of leftover cooked bread pudding may be sealed in containers and frozen to eat later. I have no idea how long the pudding lasts in the freezer... My family always ferrets out the leftovers and eats them within 48 hours of baking. This is a *very* popular dessert in our home!
