Mexican Bread Pudding (Capirotada)

Mexican Bread Pudding

Topped with whipped cream, this deep, warm bread pudding is filled with spiced fruit flavor and a nutty crunch.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare buttered 1-quart shallow baking dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar, water, corn syrup, cinnamon and cloves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, without stirring, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  3. In prepared baking dish, arrange bread, banana, apples, raisins, peanuts and almonds in a single layer.
  4. Remove and discard spices from sugar syrup. Gradually pour enough syrup over bread and fruit mixture to moisten bread well. (Pour slowly, or the syrup will go to the bottom.) Save remaining syrup to use when serving. Cover dish.
  5. Bake in the center of oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until apples are tender. Uncover; continue baking until pudding top is crisp and golden, another 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Serve warm with whipped cream or sweetened sour cream, if desired.
