My father-in-law is 95 and he only likes sweet things, so I'm always trying to come up with new dishes. This is very good. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

If you need an easy apple dessert recipe for the fall or want to spice up your holiday dessert table, this is the ultimate bread pudding. It's a rich custard-like bread pudding with big chunks of apple pie filling. Wonderful served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream to complement the apple pie flavors.
