Anyone for apple bourbon bread pudding? I thought so. Me too. Our first apple challenge entry comes from Kate, of real food*real life. Kate has also shared the recipe. The picture is from Kate.
I love this recipe for several reasons. First of all: bread pudding. Bread pudding is my favorite dessert. One time I had praline bread pudding at Jazzfest in New Orleans and I spent weeks trying to track down the vendor so that I could get their recipe. No luck. I even thought about writing Bon Appetit. But I figured I would just go back someday. Then Katrina hit. I wonder if the stand is still there? I am obsessed.
Second, Kate's bread pudding was made with homemade challah. Hello heaven. Oh, and third, bourbon. The magic ingredient in a perfect Manhattan. Not that I drink those. Well only once a week.
I am also excited to discover Kate's blog!!! I have added her to the blogroll. And remember, you have until October 16 to get your pics of apple dishes in!
