I loved everything about this Apple-Apple Bread Pudding chosen by Elizabeth of the blog Cake or Death.
I love bread pudding. It's homey and comforting.
I love custard. Because...well it's smooth and filling.
I love baked apples. They remind me of my mom's apple pie.
I love apple butter. Because I have never used it and I love exploring and using new ingredients.
I love challah bread. Mostly because I love saying challah.
I love cutting bread into triangles. It makes me feel like I'm a child again.
I love that my family loved this dessert.
Now for some more thoughts. I've really been trying to write my first impressions (along with my husband's) on each recipe page of the cookbook... when I make it and as we eat it. Thankfully I did with this bread pudding recipe. Here we go:
Becky's Thoughts: Delicious, warm and homey. I loved that it didn't have spices. The custard and bread were really the stars. It was nice not to have any distractions. It had a good amount of moistness and was perfect with a dusting of confectioner's sugar.
Adam's Thoughts: (He was oblivious that I was writing down his reactions :) ) The custard was delicious. It had a great, spongy texture and just enough apple flavor. It was good at room temperature or warm.
So there you have it friends. You really should give this a try. It was simple and would make a great dessert for a gathering of friends and family. You can find the recipe on Elizabeth's blog.
