Method

45 minutes
 

Bread and apples are baked in custard and drizzled over with caramel sauce. Simple and comforting.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a 15 x 23 cm baking dish.

1. Pudding: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon, salt, vanilla essence and egg yolks and set aside.

2. Put the apples, nuts and torn bread into the prepared baking dish and toss to combine. Pour the custard over. Carefully toss, making sure the bread is submerged in the custard, and leave for 10 minutes to allow the bread to soak up the custard.

3. Bake for 45 minutes or until the centre has set. Let cool for 5 minutes.

4. Sauce: Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and buttermilk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer for 1 minute.

5. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the bicarbonate of soda followed by the vanilla essence, cinnamon and salt. The sauce will thicken as it cools.

6. Drizzle some of the caramel sauce over the bread pudding when it comes out of the oven. Serve the pudding with the rest of the sauce and, if you like, ice cream.
