I hate to gloat but........ I just had a cup of coffee and a piece of apple bread pudding for breakfast. Damn! That's good stuff Maynard! Its just too easy, I had some left over French bread (good bread makes good pudding). Its like smoking its more about a little prep and wait than any type of fancy cooking. I never made my own caramel before, usually I go with a good rum raisin sauce, but its just too simple also. See all those little bits of apple in there? I also added some cider to the custard (with some spiced rum), and got a wild tangy taste! The apples are not real predominate (but they never are), but you know they are there. BTW I used Honey Crisp my favorite just at the moment. Oh and caramel? Never did it before, but..... I don't know why I have not been doing all my life except for the fact I'd be dead by now from a coronary ..... LOL Bippity Boppity Boo! Put 'em together and what have ya got? Bippity Boppity Boo! A dang good breakfast! Throw in a cup of good dark roast coffee.... not much else could stand up to it. I mean this would even make a glass a whole milk run crying like a little girlie boy. I just wanted to gloat, I will be back in a bit with recipes after the tech rep calls and figures out why I can copy and paste from my own cook books......... Grrrr...... BTW I was really impressed how good it turned out, I have never seen or heard of it before, but had it been a cow patty with that caramel sauce on it there would be a line for more.....ROFLMAO I did google it, good ol'google and it seems to be fair popular, just not here! BBL with the recipes. Its all simple stuff any country home would have on the shelf or reefer.
