  • 2 apples, preferably Granny Smith
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 1/2 loaves French bread (large loaves not baguettes)
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup apricot preserves
  • Brandy cream sauce (see below)


  • Chop apples into small bite-sized pieces. Soak apples in lemon juice, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate overnight before using.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove crust from 1 loaf french bread and slice lengthwise down the middle, then cut into 8 pieces.
  • Pour milk into a small pot and add granulated sugar; bring to a boil. Beat eggs, brandy, and almond flavoring together. Whisk in a little of the hot milk, then add remainder, whisking until mixed.
  • Layer half the bread pieces in a 9-inch square pan; pour half the liquid mixture over it. Mash mixture with your hands, then pat down into a layer.
  • Mix prepared apples with nutmeg, remaining cinnamon, remaining brown sugar, some of the remaining milk mixture and raisins; spoon over bread.
  • Remove crust from remaining bread; cut bread into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Overlap bread on top of apples and pour the remaining milk mixture on top.
  • Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven; glaze with apricot preserves. Cut bread pudding into servings; place each serving in a bowl.
  • Pour Brandy Cream Sauce over each serving; serve hot. Makes 9 servings.
