Dried apricots and a hint of cardamom make this old favorite into something special.

Top Review by Cindy Lynn

I made this tonight for a nice treat after rushing around for Home Coming activities. I took it out of the oven just before we left the house and when we returned, I warmed up my homemade maple syrup, which I served over it. The apricots made a nice change from traditional bread puddings in both appearance and taste. I didn't have any currants and the substitution recommended was raisins, which I did have so I used them. Delicious...thanks for sharing Miss Annie!!!
