COOKING WITH CLORIS -- APPLE CRANBERRY BREAD PUDDING


Thanksgiving is just around the corner. If you want something a bit different from the standard stuffing this year, try Cloris’s Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding. Because you make it in the crock pot, you don’t have the hassles of stuffing the turkey. -- AP

APPLE CRANBERRY BREAD PUDDING
Ingredients:
non-stick cooking spray
10 cups cubed brioche or challah bread
4 eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
2-1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can whole cranberry sauce

Spray inside of slow cooker with non-stick spray. Place bread cubes in the bottom of the crock pot. Sprinkle in walnuts. Mix loosely with bread. Place eggs in mixer and whip. Continue whipping as you add milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour over bread. Press down to submerge bread. Add spoonfuls of cranberry sauce on top of the bread. Cover and cook on high for 2 hrs.

This sounds like it would make a great dessert as well. Anyone going to try it? -- AP
