As a food blogger, my favorite times of the year are the first few weeks of a new season.
For me, a new season means new produce to work with, new flavor profiles to incorporate into recipes and most importantly, new season-themed food photography props to play with 😉
For fall, it’s all about the apples, squash, pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves!
I took a few of these fall-inspired ingredients and incorporated them into a delicious new bread pudding recipe.
For this recipe I used King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls to give the dish an extra dash of sweetness.
I love the way the bread bakes up in this recipe. While most of the bread is soft and light, the top few pieces get a little crispy caramelization which gives the dish a delicious balance of textures and flavors!
The drizzle of caramel over the recipe is like the cherry on top of a sundae, the icing on top of the cake, the whip cream on top of the pie, basically, it’s the ingredient that takes this bread pudding recipe from really delicious to over-the-top-amazing!
- 12 King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (cubed)
- 3 eggs (whisked)
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup diced apples
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 2 tbsp cold butter
- 4 tbsp caramel syrup
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Place the rolls in a greased 9” x 13” casserole dish.
Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Pour the mixture over the Hawaiian sweet rolls.
Toss the bread and mixture together.
Top with the diced apples.
Mix the apples into the bread pudding.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and flour, fold in the butter and mix until a crumble forms.
Sprinkle the brown sugar crumble over the bread pudding.
Place in the oven for 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven, drizzle with the caramel syrup and place back in the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Serve it as breakfast, brunch or dessert. Heck, I may or may not have eaten it for dinner last night 😉
It’s warm, sweet, delicious and filled with all of the fall flavors you love!
