Apple Bread Pudding

Fall is by far my favorite time of the year – from the tastes to the scents to the scenery. Apples are definitely one of my favorite parts of fall. We buy them all year long, but their freshness and value this time of year means I’m using them in our meals as much as possible.

This bread pudding was born out of an abundance of apples and a craving for dessert. It works wonderfully as a dessert topped with a little vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. But, it’s not overly sweet and absolutely works as a breakfast as well. Who am I kidding – it works perfectly any time of the day!
