Introduction: How to Make Apple Bread Pudding

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Bread pudding is such a classic comfort food, but today I wanted to change it up and add apples to this classic dessert and make it an Apple Bread Pudding. I love bread pudding, it is perfect to make if you have extra bread hanging around that you haven't used and you only need one apple. I will be using a Granny Smith apple for this recipe because it holds the apple texture better but feel free to use what you have on hand. This bread pudding is perfect since it is still pretty chilly outside and the cinnamon and all spice really help make this a cozy feeling dessert. It is perfect to make over the weekend or if you are having over night guest because there isn't a lot of work that goes into it and the ingredients are really basic, so let me show you how to make this Apple Bread Pudding!
