French Apple Bread Pudding



From an Eagle Brand recipe brochure, this is an easy bread pudding

dessert made with applesauce and raisins.



3 large eggs

1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 ounces)

1 jar chunky applesauce (23 ounces),

or use 2 1/2 to 3 cups chopped apples

1 3/4 cups hot water

1/4 cup melted butter

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 cups French bread cubes

1/2 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat eggs, add sweetened

condensed milk, applesauce or apples, water, melted butter, cinnamon,

and vanilla. Stir in bread and raisins, moistening completely. Turn

into a buttered 9-inch square baking dish. Bake 1 hour or until a

knife inserted in center comes out clean.


Cool. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping or dessert sauce.

Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
