    Chef Kate's Note:

    Use really good apples--and they will shine in this dish--and the sauce is so good, it makes cream or ice cream unnecessary (though do indulge if you wish)

      Great tasting bread pudding. Prepared as written without additions or deleations. I used braeburn apples which had the right amount of sweetness and flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      In this economy, who can afford Calvados ($40 a bottle), vanilla beans ($18 for a bottled pair), and baguette ($4 per loaf). Get real, Chef Kate! I used Apple Jack Brandy ($8 per bottle), imitation vanilla extract ($2 per bottle), and leftover hot dog buns and bread heels. Furthermore, I omitted the sauce. WOW! The result was spectacular. Fortunately, my taste buds (as well as those of my neighbors and family) are not so complex that I cannot enjoy the the tastes without the overpriced ingredients. The bread pudding was gone in minutes...I will definitely make this recipe again. Caution though--this is a VERY LABOR INTENSIVE recipe and works out well for preparation on the weekend (vice the work week).
