Opal® Apple Bread Pudding


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • About 6 cups 1/2-inch-cubed challah bread (about half a 15-ounce loaf)
  • 3 medium Opal® Apples peeled, cored and diced****
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


Butter a 2-quart baking dish. Toss the cubed bread and apples in a large bowl, and then arrange them evenly in the dish.

In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs, cream, milk, honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour the liquid mixture over the bread and apples. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Put the baking dish in a larger metal roasting pan. Pour hot water into the roasting pan until it comes about 1 inch up the side of the baking dish. Bake until the pudding is firm and the top is golden brown, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
