This was absolutely delicious! The only thing I changed was the bread, I used raisin bread because it was the only bread I had at the time. My husband was just crazy about it. It's not too sweet or heavy, just yummy! A definite keeper, will be making this again soon :)

I'm not rating this fairly because I don't know what went wrong with mine. I made it a few weeks ago and couldn't figure out what went wrong. The bottom was basically soup, and the top was burnt bread. Anyone have any ideas to what went wrong??

I am so surprised how much I liked this. I have never made bread pudding, and the apples gave it a nice touch. (I left out the raisins, as I was not in the mood for them.) I did make a sauce for it out of brown sugar, butter, and milk (and a little condensed milk that I had left over due to scaling the recipe to fit the amount of bread I had onhand.) In any case, this is a great recipe. Thanks!

I make bread a couple of times per week and there is always some left over from last time (usually getting too hard for the kids, but not stale yet). This recipe(Ive used more than 20 times)is the perfect solution to "what should I do with this leftover bread". Sometimes I toss the apples w/cinamon and brown sugar. And another time I used peaches and blackberries !!

This turned out great! I made a double batch back on Thanksgiving weekend (Canada) as we were having company and I had lots of apples that had been picked to use up. I used reduced fat sweetened condensed milk as well and it came out perfectly...with lots to go around! I made sure to add the raisins as we love them! Bread pudding is one of my hubby's favourites, so he was quite pleased!

This was pretty good. I had 3 apples I needed to use (2 Granny Smiths and 1 Braeburn), part of a loaf of french bread and a can of sweetened condensed milk, so I decided to make this. It has a very pleasant *cinnamon-y* flavor and the texture was just right. Very good recipe. P.S. I decided to chop up some walnuts and added those. That tasted really good, too.

I wanted to make a larger pudding, so used 8 stale Kaiser rolls with sesame seeds and used 6 eggs and baked in a 9 x 13 glass pan. I used 5 Honeycrisp apples which were great and instead of raisins used dried cranberries. This turned out wonderful with a nice rich custard and a sweet apple topping. I will make this one again for sure.

Very satisfying. It was very easy to make and the taste is very good. I made a couple substitutions which may have changed the flavor a bit, but still pretty good. I used middle-eastern egg bread (slightly sweet), egg whites (all I had), and sprayed the pan with baking spray instead of buttering it. For my taste, it could have been a little sweeter and a little more flavorful. Next time I may add some brown sugar and some spice mix (apple pie spice maybe) to the mix. YUM!
