Dinner Tonight: Apple Raisin Breakfast Bread Pudding

Su Johnson, who submitted this recipe for Apple Raisin Breakfast Bread Pudding, calls it “a sweet alternative to a breakfast egg casserole.” Because it has to be prepared the night before it is served, she recommends it for family get-togethers and showers, but really any ambitious brunch will do.

Apple Raisin Breakfast Bread Pudding

6 eggs

1 cup milk

½ cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 (16-ounce) loaf cinnamon raisin bread cut into 1-inch cubes

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ cup melted butter

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced

The night before serving, beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and nutmeg until evenly blended. Fold in the bread cubes and set aside until the bread soaks up the egg mixture – about 5 minutes. Place the 2 sliced apples into a mixing bowl and sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Toss to evenly coat. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and arrange prepared apple slices evenly into the bottom of the greased dish; spoon the bread mixture over the top. Cover the dish with foil and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, preheat an oven to 375°. Sprinkle the diced apples over the bread pudding and cover again with the foil. Bake until the bread is no longer soggy – about 40 minutes. Remove the foil and set the oven to broil. Broil until golden brown on top, about 5 minutes. Remove and let stand 5–10 minutes before serving. May be served with maple syrup.
