recipe ingredients
2 large tart apples, such as Jonathan or Granny Smith
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. light-colored corn syrup
2 Tbsp. margarine or butter
1/4 cup pecan pieces
3 beaten eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
10 1/2-inch-thick slices Italian or French bread

recipe directions
Peel, core, and slice apples (should have 2 cups). In a small saucepan combine apple slices and 1/4 cup water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes or till apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Drain in a colander. Transfer apples to a small bowl. Gently stir cinnamon into cooked apples. Set aside. In the same small saucepan combine brown sugar, light-colored corn syrup, and margarine or butter. Cook and stir over medium heat till mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into a 2-quart square baking dish. Sprinkle pecans over all. In a medium mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and nutmeg. Arrange a layer of half the bread slices in the baking dish atop the caramel mixture, trimming bread to fit. Spoon cooked apples evenly over bread layer. Arrange remaining bread slices on top. Carefully pour the egg mixture over bread, pressing the bread down gently to moisten the slices completely. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours. At serving time, remove the plastic wrap. Bake, uncovered, in a 325*F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or till a knife comes out clean. Remove from oven; run a knife around edge to loosen. Let stand for 15 minutes. Carefully invert pudding onto a platter. (Spoon any remaining caramel mixture in dish over pudding.) Cut into triangles. Serve warm or cool.

Recipe submitted by Jackie R. Jackie tells us that this bread pudding is similar to French toast, but makes a caramel layer on the top and bottom.

    This recipe was easy and very good. I am on Weight Watchers, and I added a little FF caramel topping and FF Cool Whip. It was quite a treat!

    We thought this was amazing. It is more like a dessert/treat than a breakfast dish because it is so sweet. It slice beautifully. I would say that it serves 4 to 6 rather than 8 (because it is so good!).

    I followed the recipes exactly, I did add more apples, when I pulled it out of the oven I was worried, the bread looked too crusty on top, and I didn’t see much custard, but I kept my hopes up. When I took the first bite, I had to wonder, there was no taste!! It was bland and boring!! I had to add caramel ice cream topping to give it taste. Total disappointment–sorry, didn’t care for it, but will try others on here!
