Bread pudding is an old-fashioned dessert, and when you make it in your crockpot, it’s even better than when you bake it in your oven!
Besides, on these hot summer days, your slow cooker will not compete with your air conditioner and raise your heating/cooling bill! There’s no more practical way to cook in the summertime than with your crockpot!
8 slices of bread (raisin bread is especially good) cubed
2 cups milk (again, cream is even better!)
1/4 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup Texas Apple Cinnamon Grilling and Finishing Sauce
2 apples, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Ingredients for the sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar or Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla
What to do:
Place the bread cubes in the greased crockpot.
Beat together the eggs and milk. Stir in the sugar, butter, raisins, apples, finishing sauce, and cinnamon. Pour over the bread and stir.
Cover and cook on high for one hour. Reduce heat to low and cook for four hours.
Just before the four hours are over, make the sauce. Begin by melting the butter in a saucepan, and stirring in the flour until smooth. (white sauce) Gradually add the water, sugar, and vanilla. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, for two minutes or until thickened.
Serve the sauce over the warm bread pudding.
It’s absolutely delicious.
