Easy Bread Pudding Recipe

3-4 ripe apples
3 tbsp sugar
1-2 tbsp rum
6 stale rolls or 10 oz stale bread
1/2 cup milk
50g butter
5-6 eggs separated
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
a pinch of cinnamon grated peel of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp grated almonds
50g washed raisins
butter and bread crumbs for baking dish
small pats of butter to put on top or
2 egg-whites and 4 tbsp sugar

Peel apples, cut in fine slices and steep with sugar and rum. Cut rolls in fine slices and moisten with milk. Beat butter until creamy, mix in egg yolks, sugar, cinnamon, lemon peel and grated almonds.

Beat egg-whites separately until stiff. Fold together apple slices, raisins and whipped egg-white with the butter-yolk mixture.

Grease an ovenproof baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Alternate bread slices layers with apple mixture and top with small pats of butter.

Bake Ofenschlupfer in the oven at 180-200 degrees C for 30-40 minutes. The top should be slightly brown.

Bread Pudding Cooking Tip

Instead of butter you can also spread whipped egg-white over the Ofenschlupfer after about 20 minutes of baking time. In this case beat 2-3 egg-whites together with 4 tbsp sugar until stiff and reduce quantity of sugar for apples.
