Ingredients
For the bread pudding:
  • 1 loaf French bread cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 c. milk
  • ⅓ c. brown sugar
  • ⅓ c. sugar
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 t. cinnamon
  • 2 apples, peeled and cubed
For the butterscotch sauce:
  • ⅓ c. heavy cream
  • 3 T. butter
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, stirring once, or until the bread is toasted. Remove from oven, set aside, and turn off oven.
  2. In a small sauce pan over low heat combine the milk, brown sugar, and sugar. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved but do not let it boil. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
  3. Put the milk mixture in a medium bowl and add in the heavy cream. Mix well. Whisk in the eggs and egg yolks. Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon then set aside.
  4. Place the apples in a small dish and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray. Add half the bread to the pan, then add in all the apple pieces, then add the remaining bread. Pour the egg mixture over top of the mixture making sure to cover all of the bread. Chill for 45 minutes, pressing the mixture in the pan down once during this time.
  6. Remove from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Once the oven is preheated bake the bread pudding for 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and cool while you make the butterscotch sauce.
  8. To make the butterscotch sauce combine the heavy cream, butter, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add sea salt.
  9. When ready to serve cut the bread pudding into 12 squares. Place a piece of bread pudding in a bowl and drizzle with butterscotch sauce.
