I have such an easy and delicious recipe for you all today. I’ve wanted to make bread pudding for a while, but I was so nervous to make it. Well it turns out that I was nervous for no reason.
This bread pudding has to be the best I’ve ever eaten. Now, I can tell you that I’m picky about my bread pudding. I can’t have bread pudding that’s too soggy. I know that some people can, but I just can’t eat soggy soggy bread. You feel me?
When I googled bread pudding recipes I noticed that some used heavy cream and some used condensed milk. I knew once I saw condensed milk as an ingredient that I had to go that route. I like to use Eagle Brand Condensed Milk when needed. So, I started brainstorming a recipe for this bread pudding. I knew I wanted some fun and unique.
That’s where this Caramel Apple Bread Pudding was born. I used fresh apples and chopped them into small pieces. Then I used Eagle Brand Caramel Condensed Milk. This condensed milk has a special blend of milk and sugar that’s been dissolved using their vacuum process. The thickness is perfect and caramelizes easily and evenly. Plus the flavor is amazing. I could eat it by the spoonful.
This dessert doesn’t take any time at all to make either which is a plus. I would suggest you get the french bread the day before. You want the bread to dry out a little bit. It makes it that much better.
So if you need an easy, but delicious dessert then I think you need to make this. This Caramel Apple Bread Pudding makes a great dessert for family gatherings or those holiday potlucks. You can make it the day before so you’re ready to go the next day. Just make sure to get a slice first because it will be gone before you know it.
