TWD: Apple-Apple Bread Pudding


Elizabeth of Cake or Death? decided on Apple-Apple Bread Pudding for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe.

This dessert was like a cross between bread pudding and apple pie and it was darn tasty. I had to quickly pawn this off on the neighbors or it would have been breakfast, lunch, and dinner until the bottom of the pan was sadly reached.



I decided to make my own challah since I have no idea where to buy brioche or challah in my area. I used the recipe from "Baking with Julia" which is from baker Lauren Groveman who just happens to have the recipe posted on her site --> HERE. I made 1/2 recipe and didn't include the raisins, although that probably would have been good. The bread pudding used about half of the loaf. The rest of the loaf was hungrily snarfed down by my family, warm and heavy with butter.


OK, that's that. If you'd like to see the recipe, please visit Elizabeth's blog, or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Ok, I'm a little jealous of the ones that look so perfect and get such raves, like yours! I still ended up a winner in my book. ;)

Your challah looks beautiful! And I agree with you--this was kind of like apple pie.

You are just way to good.

I used sour dough for mine.

Although your bread pudding looks great, that challah is a thing of beauty!!

That challah looks incredible! I made my bread, too; I had the time and it seemed to be the economical option. Hope the neighbors enjoyed the bread pudding.

Your bread pudding looks amazing, I almost want a piece!! Almost I say as I don't really like bread pudding, which is why I didn't make it!

I am so amazed by people who made their own bread to go in this bread pudding! Talk about going the extra mile. Looks lovely! Thanks for baking along this week. :)
