Bread Pudding Cups on plateI love the flavour of caramel apples but they can be a bit tough on the teeth. I thought it would be fun to bring their flavours to something soft and comforting like bread pudding. I baked them inside of muffin tins for presentation and portion control reasons. They're so delicious, they are making it to the tables of all my holiday feasts this year! I hope you try these.


I used super stale French loaf bread slices for this. If you only have fresh bread handy, give it a slight toasting before mixing it in with the egg mixture. This will give it a lovely texture and banish all sogginess. I also used Kraft caramel squares for this. Alternatively, you can just drizzle caramel sauce on before serving, but using the soft chews for the last portion of baking really matches the textures of a caramel apple! :)

Prep Time: 15 minutes

  25. You can serve them warm with cream. I like them as is, cooled down with the caramel parts chewy again. It's just like a caramel apple!
