Bread, raisins and apples are baked with eggs and cinnamon, then topped with a sweet, warm vanilla sauce in this comforting dish.
Made with apples soaked in honey and clove, this bread pudding is not only quick and easy to prepare, but full of warm, delicious flavor.
Use your day-old cider doughnuts, half-and-half, eggs, and apples to make this decadent cider doughnut bread pudding.
The first time I made it according to directions and it turned out wonderfully. My grandmother who is quite the bread pudding snob even said it was the best she ever tasted. I now have to make it for her every year when I visit for Christmas. I have made it several times now and I have tweaked it a bit. I now add a shot or two of Bourbon to the egg and eggnog mixture. I also sprinkle the top with cinnamon. My mom likes to add soaked raisins when she makes it. Also great with a handful of walnuts or chocolate chips or both. Have fun exploring and I hope you enjoy making this for your family as much as I do. So glad I came across this recipe years ago, it has now become a family holidays staple!
I liked it, but it was not sweet enough for my taste. I added freshly grated nutmeg and about 1/2 tsp cinnamon which others suggested. I also added raisins, but I did not include apples. I used dinner rolls as the bread and they worked great. Next time I will add about 1/3 C of sugar to the eggnog mixture.
Thanks to other comments I baked for 40min covered and 10 min uncovered. I also added agave syrup plus cayenne pepper to add sweetness and a nice hint of heat. Made it for brunch. Yum!
I was just okay. It needed some kind of seasoning for flavor.
A beloved recipe for bread pudding, rich with milk and eggs, and chock-full of raisins, was found tucked away in a family Bible for safekeeping. It has a smooth vanilla sauce for serving warm over the pudding, too.
