I haven't tried this yet, but am going to tonight. I really want to be faithful to use up all my freshly milled, daily bread! This is going to be a GREAT addition to my repertoire.
- 2 large apples
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 5 eggs
- 2⁄3 cup sucanat with honey
- 2 cups milk
- orange zest
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 5 cups bread cubes
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
- Peel, core and cut the apple in wedges and than in thin slices, sprinkle and mix with lemon juice and cinnamon. Heat up butter in a shallow pan over medium heat and sauté apple for 2-3 minutes to soften. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and honey granules until well combined. Whisk in the half-and-half, orange zest, and vanilla. Add the bread cubes and cranberries and mix well. Let stand for 15 minutes so the bread can soak up the custard then add the cooled down apples.
- Preheat oven to 325. Put your mixture into a buttered souffle pan. Place souffle pan into a roasting pan. Place both pans into the oven and fill the roasting pan with boiling water 1/2 way up the outside of the souffle pan. Bake for about 1 hour.
Absolutely wonderful tasting bread pudding, & it's a recipe I'll be keeping on file to make again & again, for sure! Great flavor combo from apples, & cranberries, as well as the generous amount of orange zest that used! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

This was a delightful bread pudding. I love almost anything made with cranberries, and this did not disappoint. I did use a few more cranberries than called for, though!lol I served this with warm cranberry sauce over it. Thnx for sharing your recipe, vanilla sugar. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

This stuff is a symphony of tastes, textures, and happy memories of my days growing up in the deep south. HOWEVER...the apple and cranberries take this superb dish to new heights!!! If you like the tang of apple and cranberries, you should love this recipe. I ended up using the yeast rolls I made for another PAC baby and I'll tell you what...SHAZAM!!! Delight in every bite. Oh, I can't wait to show off to my friends and family with this little jewel of a recipe. Thanks for posting. Made for Pick A Chef, 2010.
