Making a bread pudding is the best way to use bread leftovers.

This recipe is one of those recipes that my father used to do often, whenever there were bread leftovers. But I made some changes to my father’s recipe, or better I added new ingredients like the apple filling and the crumble on top.

How to make a perfect Bread Pudding?

To make a perfect bread I have some tips for you:

  • It’s essential that after the milk, sugar, and eggs have boiled, you’re going to add the bread and then you need let it sit for 10 minutes, so the bread can absorb some of the liquid.
  • I choose to put the bread and apple pudding on ramekin, but you can use a baking pan if you prefer. In this case, when you remove the pudding from the oven you can cut it into squares.
  • This recipe has 3 big steps: crumble, apple filling and pudding. Follow this order and don´t miss any of them.

When you take the first bite of this bread and apple pudding with the crispy crumble melting with the vanilla ice cream you will feel your body melt with delight.
