Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 1998

Ingredients

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled and cut into matchsticks
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 day-old 8-ounce loaf brioche
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Caramel Bourbon Vanilla Sauce

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Place apples in a small bowl, and toss with lemon juice; set aside. Butter six 8-ounce ramekins or custard cups; place in a roasting pan. Cut brioche into eight slices, then quarter each slice; set brioche aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together cream, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and nutmeg. Add brioche, and toss to coat.

  3. Place 1 tablespoon caramel sauce into each ramekin. Add approximately 1/3 cup apple mixture, then 1/3 cup bread mixture. Add a second layer of sauce, apple, and bread.

  4. Carefully place the roasting pan on the center oven rack. Fill roasting pan with hot water to within 1/2 inch of ramekin tops. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Cook 20 minutes. Remove foil; cook 20 minutes more. Remove roasting pan from the oven, and transfer ramekins to a wire rack to cool 5 minutes. Using a towel, invert ramekins onto serving platter. Serve warm with remaining caramel sauce on the side.
