Recipe: Apple Maple Bread Pudding

Posted: July 12, 2012

1 small tart apple

1 cup slightly stale white bread, crusts removed, cut into small pieces

1½ tablespoons melted butter

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heavy cream or vanilla ice cream for garnish

1. Peel and core apple and cut into chunks. Heat a couple of tablespoons of water in a small heavy pot and toss in the apple. Lower the heat, cover and cook, stirring a few times, for about five minutes or until apples are soft. Cook a little longer, adding a splash more water if necessary.

2. Mix the bread pieces with butter and maple syrup, then stir in the cooked apple.

3. Transfer the pudding ingredients to a small baking dish. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bubbly and brown on top.
