Eve's Apple Bread Pudding

Sasha Kamen


Adapted my way from Simple French Food by Richard Olney. I decided to add the drunken raisins and made a few other adjustments that I think makes it better and, believe it or not, less caloric than the original. If you like, you can cube the bread instead of crumbling it.

How to Make Eve's Apple Bread Pudding


  1. In a small dish, soak the raisins in wine for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Saute the apples in about 3 tablespoons butter, tossing from time to time, until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Toast the breadcrumbs in the remaining butter (adding more butter if necessary) over very low heat, stirring regularly, until they are uniformly golden and crisp.
  4. Spread the crumbs in the bottom of a lightly buttered 8"x12" baking dish. Arrange the apples on the bed of crumbs. Drain the raisins and sprinkle on top of the applies. Sprinkle cinnamon lightly over all.
  5. Whisk together the milk, 2 eggs, 1/3 c. sugar, and salt, and pour slowly over the apples. Bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  6. For the sauce, whisk together the last four ingredients in the top of a double boiler. Cook over simmering water, whisking constantly, until thickened.
  7. Serve warm, topping each individual serving with a spoonful or two of the sauce. Add a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
