Apple-Apple Bread Pudding - Tuesday with Dorie
Apple-Apple Bread Pudding

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Elizabeth of Cake or Death? decided on Apple-Apple Bread Pudding on pages 408 and 409 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours. Have you visited Liz's blog? It is filled with lovely, absolutely beautiful yumminess. See the wedding cake she made for her brother's wedding!

Apple-Apple Bread Pudding - Tuesday with Dorie
Layer of brioche, layer of caramelized apples and more brioche. Did I mention the custard infused in all this? Yeah. It's like apple pie AND bread pudding. I know...Shut up! It rocks.

I was really good at math growing up. The only part of chemistry that I liked was converting kilograms to whatchamacallit-grams. I've spent years doing accounting work so Microsoft Excel and I are good friends. But this recipe? I just winged it. I think I made 1/8 or 1/12 or 1/4 of the recipe, but I'm not sure. Anyway, this is yummy so I suggest you make the full recipe! :)

(left) I'm sure some bakers made their own brioche or challah bread. But me? Pressed for time and I really can't have that much bread lying around the house. I picked up these brioche buns at Trader Joe's. (right) Caramelized apples are the filling of this bread pudding.

Apple butter is spread on the bread to give the second "apple" in the Apple-Apple Bread Pudding. Los Angeles Farmer's Market shoppers may recognize Ha's Apples. Ha's Apple Farm of Tehachapi has great apples and pears. And the son looks like a clone of his dad...seriously! Have you seen them? Anyway, you won't be seeing Mrs. Ha dragging anyone on the Maury Povich show.

I knew I wanted to make one large serving in this cute Kings Arthur Individual Pie Slice pans. I got these for my birthday and this was my first time using them! Thanks J for these awesome cute pans!

Love your slice-in-a-dish! A great way to control portions. I could use that.

That looks like such a wonderful recipe. I love the idea of the individual pie slice pans.
I found the perfect, yes absolutely fool proof Brioche recipe this weekend. You should try to bake it. I will be posting it this week.

Grams? kilograms?

Metric? shoot me now!

You are brilliant though to be able to have mastered that.

I'm so lovin' your individual-sized pan, especially for this recipe, as I could not stop eating this bread pudding.

Totally chuckled at your comment about Mr Ha's son being his spitting image - so true!

Katrina said... [Reply to comment]

Oh my gosh, totally love that individual pan! Your bread pudding looks great. It didn't work for me with the wingin' it. But I kept on and came up with a yummy treat!

Hennifer said... [Reply to comment]

Those pans are so cute! And I love apples!
And I can't believe I'm seeing Tehachapi mentioned on a blog :-) My grandmother-in-law lives there after moving from Tennessee a couple years ago.

Apples... drool!

That is the most adorable little slice! You're too much!

Flourchild said... [Reply to comment]

Perfect! I made two little ramekins full of it!

Judy said... [Reply to comment]

I went the TJs route as well, and made 1/3 of the recipe. Now I wish I'd only halved it. I'll have to search for the apple butter -- sounds and looks delicious.

LOL, that Maury show... crazy! Lucky Mrs. Ha.

Your little slice of bread pudding is too cute for words!

beautiful 'slice' of bread pudding. I made 1/2 and wish I had made more, but like you, don't need all that 'bread' in the house.

I'd just like to say I was speed-browsing through my Google reader. After viewing over 200 entries, yours is the only one that stopped me dead in my tracks and forced me to leave a comment. HOLY. GOD. This looks AMAZING.
