Apple Pie Bread Pudding


A. Bread

6 pieces of bread (old multigrain bread will do)
3 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk (a bit of sweetened condensed milk will do)
1 tablespoonful of cinnamon powder (quanto basta ... ikut suka)
a bit of vanilla essence (old bottle will do)

B. Apples

3 big green apples / 4 small Granny Smith apples
3 tablespoonful of cornflour to mix (custard pudding flour will do)
1 cup brown sugar (castor sugar will do)

How to
  1. Stack the 6 pieces of bread and cut into small squares (4 x 4) using a bread knife.
  2. Beat 3 eggs + milk + cinnamon and vanilla essence till dissolved.
  3. Soak bread pieces in egg-milk mixture.
  4. Remove soaked bread pieces and place in bread tin for baking.
  5. Peel and cube apples.
  6. Drain apple cubes and add flour and sugar. Mix
  7. Add apples to bread and bake in a small electric oven for 15 minutes or till done.
  8. Serve hot or warm, with/without custard.

  1. Watery bread.
  2. Custard flour is ok but not suitable when mixed with water.
  3. Dry apples on top - cooked and soft, not sour, but still not the expected result.

Errors made
  1. Apple pieces were too large - need smaller chunks.
  2. Can try soften the apple chunks by cooking them first and then add custard flour mixed with some water. Then add sugar and ground cinnamon. That way the apples are cooked.
  3. Watery bread. The excess water entered the bread and gathered at the bottom. Use less water next time. Bread and butter pudding does not need water. Next time mix the egg and milk together and pour on the bread pieces. Then place the stewed apples on top and bake in microwave oven.
