YUMMY! And very easy to follow instructions. I made the Naughty version - in muffin pans. They looked - and tasted - just so delicious. I used raisin bread and omitted the raisins as a separate ingredient, and I reduced the sugar by half and added an additional 1/4 cup of the pecans in the crumble. In the Naughty sauce, I used a good quality dark chocolate roughly chopped instead of the chocolate chips, so my guess that made mine even Naughtier! I also used low fat cream without compromising flavour; well, to our taste anyway. Loved the blend of flavours in the puddings themselves and loved the coffee liqueur in the sauce. Definitely a recipe I'll be making again. Thank you for sharing it, Anme. Made for PRMR.

  3. Mix together apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar (if using any, I find it too sweet when I add suagr but others in my family like this with added sugar), 6 eggs, and both milks, almond extract, and vanilla in a a separate bowl. Pour this mixture over bread cubes and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
