Apple, Rum and Raisin Bread Pudding

"A delicious bread pudding served warm or cold with custard sauce, whipped cream, or recipe #9347. Also good for breakfast with maple syrup. I used recipe #78579 to prepare the baking dish and added more raisins. From Foodland Ontario booklet."

    Does it make a difference if you use light or dark rum? Also, can rum extract be used in lieu of the liquor?

    Love this recipe! It turned out just right... wouldn't change a thing. It reminds me of the bread pudding my mother used to make when I was a kid. I used apple juice that I had on hand. Will try rum next time... there WILL be a next time!

    I made a rumless version because of the children and we have eaten it straight from the oven and it is/was glorious. I used a combo of skim milk and light cream and used up a stale fruit loaf - all in all a wonderful comfort food and easy to do.

    Delicious. I used stale homemade raisin and whole wheat breads. I chose the rum option, and added a little extra for good measure! I enjoyed this and wished I'd have used larger apples because they were so tender and tasty. I will make this again with white bread. Very easy recipe foodtvfan. Thanks.


<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!!
