My grandmom used to make the best pudding I thought ever existed. When she left us the recipe was lost, but I think that this almost just like grandmoms. I do have to say that I did make double the liquids because other reviews stated it dried out and I am glad I did because it took almost all of it. I also added 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Grandmom used to say vanilla is the key to any recipe, and she was so correct! I also added 1 more apple to it. It was very moist and so delicious.
This recipe had a nice dense texture, but it was a little dry. The recipe says to pour the liquid mixture over the bread, but I ended up adding more cream and mixing it up to prevent over dryness. The apples gave it a good taste though.
This is a very good bread pudding. In response to some of the other reviews, I would like to point out that because the denseness and dryness of the bread used can vary so much, the quantity of milk for the recipe has to be adjusted. For example, I used dry crispy crust french bread, so I added 2 extra cups of milk to the recipe, letting the bread/milk mixture soak for a half hour before baking. The end result was great.
This bread pudding is REALLY GOOD! It has a wonderfully creamy texture, lots of taste. The apples add a real wholesome flavor and not only makes it seem that your eating something "Really Good", but also "Good for You"! I add a few raisins and sometimes a handful of nuts (almonds or walnuts). Great Hot or Cold!
Very easy and yummy recipe. The apples are an added touch. I recommend this to anyone who's in a hurry and wants a great desert.
good also made with applesauce instead of fresh apples; condiment with cold half-and-half
First try at bread pudding. Excellent recipe. I added a whiskey sauce for the topping.
I think I used too much bread, however I used this receipe to make a presentation in class and everyone loved it. My teacher said it was the best she had ever had. I had to keep adding cream and milk because I thought it was too dry. But, I did serve it warm with ice cream. So the presentation was a hit. Just be careful about the bread!
