This post is almost 2 weeks too late because the bread I used for this scrumptious Bread Pudding With Caramelized Apple treat was the one I baked for our Easter Sunday dinner. I didn’t want the extra bread to get moldy and end up going to waste so 2 days after Easter Sunday I used it up for this. I wanted to make something different than the previous bread pudding with strawberry jam though and I thought about apples. We have plenty of apples. I figured it would be awesome to make caramelized apples combined with the bread pudding. I was right.

You can mix the caramelized apple with the soaked bread or layer ‘em. I did the latter, but you can do either. It will be yummy either or.

Bread Pudding With Caramelized Apple


  • 1 loaf bread
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • 2 apples peeled, cored, cubed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • Pam Spray or butter


  • Grease a loaf pan with pam spray or butter. Set aside. Chop the bread into cubes. In a container, beat the egg yolks then whisk in milk, heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in the bread pieces into the custard mix. Cover the container then store it in the fridge to soak for 2-3 hours. Once ready to bake, caramelize apple with brown sugar in a small pot. This takes about 12-15 minutes or so. Keep stirring so it doesn’t burn at the bottom.
  • Preheat the oven to 355°.
  • In the loaf pan, layer half of the soaked bread at the bottom. Add the caramelized apple on top, then the remaining soaked bread. Drizzle any remaining juice from the caramelized apple on top. Place the loaf on top of a sheet pan then stick it the oven to bake for 45 minutes.

Bread pudding can be served both ways, warm or cold but let it sit for 5 minutes or so before serving just so you don’t burn your mouth, Hah. Top with whip cream of ice cream if you want to indulge.

If not, it’s perfect just the way it is, with a cup of coffee. If you ever wonder what you could do with the extra homemade bread, make bread pudding.
