Bread-Apple Pudding with Custard


Bread Pudding

  • 4 apples, peeled and cut up
  • 6 eggs, beaten until frothy
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 9 teaspoons melted butter
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)
  • 18 slices dried bread, cubed

Custard Pie Filling

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Custard Pie Filling: Mix ingredients together in a 9 x 13-inch pan.
  2. Bake custard in water bath (set your 9 x 13-inch pan in a large pan filled with water) until custard starts to settle, about 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. I make half this recipe for a 9 x 13-inch pan.
  3. Bread Pudding: Heat apple pieces with a small amount of water in a shallow pan, just enough to soften apples. Drain.
  4. Beat eggs until frothy. Mix in brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and butter; beat until well blended.
  5. Stir in milk and raisins.
  6. Stir in cubed bread. Toss to soak the bread and let stand for 5 minutes.
  7. Add apples. Add completed bread mixture on top of the custard.
  8. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 30 minutes, then increase the heat to 425 degrees F and bake for 15 more minutes.
