Less bowls/steps = I sliced the apples very thin, and put them in a medium skillet with the raisins with a quarter stick of butter to cook them a bit. It plumps the raisins and makes the apples more tender. Then I drained the apple/raisins in a strainer over the baking dish, which greased it nicely, paper-toweling off the excess. Added the warm apple/raisins tothe bread in a bowl, stirred well and dumped into the dish. Then, in the same skillet I poured the milk, brown sugar, butter, vanilla (I used a whole teaspoon) eggs, and I added apple pie spice (could use pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, allspice, any of those) to the cinnamon, and just stirred it all together over medium low heat until the butter melts as directed and pour it over the bread mix in the dish and voila! I baked it nice and long, til it was 'set' and deep golden brown on top. Wonderful wonderful stuff. If I had had some wine or brandy to soak the raisins in.. I would have. YUM.

Way too sweet. And I didn't even use the sauce part of the recipe. I will probably try it again, and add just 1/2 - 2/3 cup of brown sugar.

They were wonderful! I made them in muffin tins instead and it turned out beautifully! I didn't like the sauce though, it separated so I ended up just putting a little on top of each muffin when they were about 1/2 baked then finished baking them. I loved them and would reccomend the recipie to anyone!

This recipe is delicious and oh, so easy. As soon as it came out of the oven, my husband and I started eating it...couldn't wait for the sauce. Maybe, I will make it, maybe I won't. We are going to have it with ice cream on top or maybe Cool Whip. I will make this often, I'm sure!

YUM!!!!!!!!! I used 1C raisins and I put the sauce on before the pudding finished baking. It tastes delicious....but would probably 1/2 the sauce if I poured it over the top again. I will definately be making this again and passing it on to everyone I know!

the pudding was rather wet and watery though i baked it for more than an hour. it's pretty nice, but i think the ingredients should go straight into the greased dish instead of the bowl, in that way you can arrange it in such a way that the apples, bread and raisins go everywhere. also, i added a crumble of butter, flour and sugar on the top, and that was fabulous.

Every time I ask my husband what he wants for dessert, he tells me this recipe. It's wonderful!! I like it with whole wheat bread, and I skip the butter sauce (vanilla ice cream is much better). When I make it for company I'm always asked for the recipe. YUM!!

Really delicious- I packed leftovers in the kids' lunchboxes- the school nurse has to check lunches and she called and asked me for the recipe!
