Apple Pie Bread Pudding

Bread pudding.

I think we all agree that it’s not the most appealing of desserts. 

I mean, does it make your heart go wild with excitement the same that things like “cookie dough cheesecake brownies” or “chocolate ganache covered brownie ice-cream cake” do? It probably doesn’t.

Yet I want to take a moment to stand up for all those poor bread puddings from around the world which are left behind, abandoned in favour of their more decadent counterparts.

Bread pudding: you rock.

Sincerely: me.

Apple Pie Bread Pudding: a healthy, quick to make and delicious dessert!

It might not be the fanciest dessert you can think of, but deep in your heart, you know that bread pudding is delicious.

Sweet and comforting, just like a hug. 

There’s something about it which makes it an irresistible guilty pleasure. Especially when you add some apple pie spices and some caramelised goodness on top.

Bonus points for the fact that this is the easiest dessert you’ll ever make. And we all know what you should be doing with all that time you’re going to save!

Laundry? No. Vacuuming? Are you crazy?! Homework? HECK TO THE NO.


(aka: how I’ve spent the last four days of my life)

Yes, I should have done my laundry instead. No, I don’t care that I’ve had to buy another pack of clean undies because I had nothing to wear. Adulthood done right? Maybe not… but on the bright side I have my veggies everyday so I guess my mum would be proud. Just don’t tell her that peanut butter on toast has been my dinner for the last few days. And the undies thing, let’s just keep that part to ourselves… and don’t dare mention her about the existence of that pile of dirty dishes sitting on the sink. OR the fact that I haven’t vacuumed for like 5 months.

Pretty sure that this is how adulthood must be done.

But seriously guys. You need to make this bread pudding. It’s quick and easy to make, healthy, delicious and comforting! It doesn’t get any better than this. Except if you decide not to tell anyone about its existence and keep it all to yourself.

But I totally didn’t tell you to.

    Laundry is the bane of my existence, but I have to disagree with you because I always love bread pudding! It’s sweet and indulgent in the best way, though this one seems healthy too!

    Yummmm I’ve been thinking about bread pudding lately (how normal am I? LOL). And I totally love yours! The apples on top make it so pretty!

    I do love bread pudding but never have made an apple pie flavoured one before. What a delicious idea and what a great way to show off the natural beauty and flavour of ripe apples!

    I think there’s something very comforting and inviting about the words “bread pudding”. I love how homey and informal it sounds but there is so much lovely flavor locked in. Good for you for standing up for it! : )

    This looks delicious Consuelo! I’m actually a huge fan of bread pudding, so this is definitely something I’d make. Good luck at school girl!

    There is nothing wrong with bread pudding especially when it is covered with apples!

  • Reply Helen @ Scrummy Lane February 4, 2015 at 8:09 pm

    Hi, Consuelo! Haha, don’t worry – I’ve been ‘an adult’ for many many years and I’m having eggs on toast for dinner today!
    I love your bread pudding – it’s your mention of the ‘caramelised top’ that really sold it to me!

    Bread pudding actually does make me crazypants excited. Like, I’m beside myself with happiness right now looking at this!

    Haha – yes, adulthood is a bit funny to figure out – I am still working at it myself 🙂

    Love your use of apple pie in this bread pudding Consuelo!

    You are quite right – bread pudding isn’t usually something which either looks nor sounds very appealing, but I simply love it. It is just so damn unhealthy usually though… So thanks a lot for a healthier recipe! I can’t wait to try 🙂

    Consuelo, cuando dices cubed bread es pan de molde? o pan de molde hecho pedacitos o como hahah

      Hola Paula! Me refiero a pan hecho trocitos. Puedes usar ambos, de barra y de molde 🙂 Gracias!
