Apple Caramel Bread Pudding
I've made this bread pudding for years, and everyone loves it. You can prepare it the night before, cover it with plastic wrap and then bake it in the morning. After it's cooked, it can sit out for a couple hours without getting soggy.—Jan Bradford, West Valley City, Utah
