This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was hosted by Elizabeth of Cake or Death?. She chose Dorie’s Apple-Apple Bread Pudding which is located on pages 408-409 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Okay, so if you didn’t already know I LOVE bread pudding, especially if it has a bourbon sauce with it 🙂 I guess it just brings back memories of my childhood. Wait, not the bourbon but the bread pudding. If it was bourbon that would be an interesting childhood, that I possibly couldn’t remember.
Ummm, Bread Pudding….yummy.
So, I was a little excited when we were given another chance to make bread pudding. Like all bread puddings, this was really easy to put together. Almost like an Apple-Apple sandwich (sauteed apples and apple butter). I decide to forgo the water bath because I didn’t want to take the time to drag out the roasting pan that is at the bottom and back of the pantry. So, I just lowered the oven temperature to 300 °F and baked it for 1 hour and 25 minutes, and it turned out perfectly.
I cut a tiny sliver off the bread pudding this morning, so that I could try it because there was noway on earth that none of this was going in my mouth. It was apply and soft, but I think it was missing something.
Wait I think I know…a huge scoop of ice cream ::day dreaming:: and BOURBON SAUCE. Also I think a nice addition to this recipe would be raisins, possibly soaked in Cointreau. All in all, this was a great dessert that I am sure my husband will be enjoying for breakfast for the next few days.
Yes, I said breakfast. On its own it is like a perfect version of Apple Stuffed French Toast. Mike has already said he would go as far as warming it up with butter and syrup. Yummy, a man after my own heart 🙂
