This recipe is taken from the 2014 Milk Calendar. The sweetly spiced custard soaks into the bread making a delicious pudding with the added flavour of apples, raisins and walnuts. It’s so easy to make a dessert the entire family will love.

- Prep: 20 min
- Cooking: 25 min
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup (250 mL) sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground allspice
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinamon
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) melted butter
- 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
- 2 cups (500 mL) Milk
- 4 cups (1 L) French or Italian bread cubed
- 1 large apple peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) raisins
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Butter an 11 x 7-inch (28 x 18 cm) glass baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, allspice, cinnamon, butter and vanilla extract until well blended. Whisk in milk. Add bread cubes, apple, raisins and walnuts and toss until bread is evenly coated with milk mixture. Spread evenly in prepared baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden, edges are puffed and a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let cool slightly and serve warm.
Choose a dense bread, rather than a fluffy one, for the best texture in your bread pudding.
For a less sweet and mildly-spiced version, decrease the sugar to 3/4 cup (180 mL) and decrease the allspice to 1/2 tsp (2 mL).
