"Bread pudding with its own caramel sauce. The only thing else needed is maybe some ice cream. So good!"

heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups
Italian bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
This actually works. Good way to avoid buying caramel topping. My only changes are - didn't use Italian bread (I put my bread heels in the freezer so I can cook things like bread pudding once a month), I cut the sugar in the pudding to only 2/3 a cup and added two diced apples, and I presoaked the apples in the rum.
I made this twice this week, the first time I burnt the caramel and made it with out it. The pudding was so good I made it again and didn't burn the caramel. I used 3 day old dry Italian loaf on the first one and it soaked up the egg mixture very well and was a very moist and flavorful result. The 2nd one was not as old and crustier and didn't soak up the egg as well giving a drier result. Both times I had more then half the egg mixture left over so the next time I make this and I will make it again I am going to cut the measurements on the egg mixture. So very good!
I was scared to use so many eggs! but this is my favorite bread pudding now - seriously the best I've ever made!! I followed the recipe completely - except for adding a teaspoon of cinnamon. It slid out of the baking dish like a flan - and even looked like a flan to our amazement. Next time, I'll add butter and vanilla extract to the caramel to give it a bit more creaminess. Outside of that, I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, except for adding more sugar to combat the egg flavor.
Made this for my Husband for Father's Day.....my whole family loved it and the couple of fork fulls I allowed myself were so worth it :) I added two teaspoons of cinnamon to the egg mixture. I also did not make the Caramel Sauce, as I found Smucker's Special Recipe Butterscotch Caramel Flavored Topping and i used that. My husband loves Butterscotch and I thinned it out a little with about 2 tablespoons of rum to a half cut of topping. then I just poured it over the whole thing. Served it with Ice Cream too.....yes that's how bad we got this past weekend.
