  • Caramel ice cream topping (optional)


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease an 11x7-inch baking dish.

COMBINE bread, apple and raisins in large bowl. Beat eggs in medium bowl. Stir in evaporated milk, Juicy Juice, sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Pour egg mixture over bread mixture, pressing bread into milk mixture; let stand for 10 minutes. Pour into prepared baking dish.

BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until set and apples are tender. Serve warm with caramel topping.

gluten free & wonderful

Tried this recipe with gluten free bread and brought it to my celiac support group meeting. I came home with an empty dish and a promise to make it again. Even with gluten free bread this recipe is a winner.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL - Bread pudding is one of my husband's favorite desserts. He enjoys anything with raisins and/or nuts. I will make it again...and again....

Like Mom used to make

Saw the recipe and had to try it. My mom used to make similar to this but with almonds and other nuts. So went ahead made with the additions for a family brunch and everyone raved about it. This will be a new addition to the brunches in the future.

Easy and Yummy!

This recipe is very easy and quite delicious! The apples add a different complexity to the rest of the ingredients. I've already made it twice in as many days and will certainly make it again.

Made this last night and I was so pleased with the results. I used 1/3 cup half & half and the remainder whole milk since that is what I had available and I thought it would make it 'richer'. It came out far better than I anticipated especially since it took practically no time whatsoever!

Simple and Tasty

My son loves bread pudding so I am always looking for twists on the traditional recipe. This one was simple to make and obviously he liked it because I came home from work to find an empty pan sitting on the counter. I did make one change - my only available raisins were rather dry and hard so I softened them up by soaking in whiskey - you could use rum or brandy too. It added a nice touch to the flavor.
