A delicious custardy bread pudding made with Hawaiian Sweet Bread - taken out of the Big Island's local electric company's cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (1 lb) Hawaiian sweet bread (round loaf)
  • 1 (20 ounce) can apple pie filling (as can sizes are shrinking now, it may be less)
  • 2 cups milk (even skim milk is okay)
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 12 cup butter
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • cinnamon, to sprinkle

Directions

  1. Peel off brown crust from bread and cut bread into bite sized pieces and place into a 13x9x2 inch pan that has been sprayed/greased.
  2. Top bread cubes with apple pie filling.
  3. In medium sized pot scald milk; then stir in sugar and butter till it melts. Remove from heat and cool somewhat.
  4. Combine eggs with some of the milk mixture (tempering?) and then add all back to pot. Pour over bread and apple pie filling. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Store in refrigerator. I much prefer mine chilled, as opposed to warm, but either way it's good!
