Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. I messed around with it a bit, and made a different caramel sauce that I use in my pies. Or, you can use my Brown Sugar Salted Caramel Sauce too.
I was tempted to add in some brandy or bourbon, but hubby is not a fan. Maybe next time...
This recipe is very generous, so I ended up bringing the leftovers to my in-laws, who ate them happily.

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding
Adapted from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker: http://wiseanticsoflife.blogspot.com/2011/10/caramel-apple-bread-pudding-improv.html
When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be good. Bread pudding made with delicious apples, and caramel sauce. Perfect!
1 loaf sweet bread (such as cinnamon raisin, or challah), sliced and chunked
4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup agave nectar (or brown sugar)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter (salted)
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Layer the bread and apples alternately in an 8 to 10-cup baking dish with lid ending with bread. Whisk the eggs in a bowl; add milk, butter, vanilla and sugar and vanilla, whisking until sugar is dissolved. Pour over the bread mixture.
Cover with lid and bake for 1 hour at 350°F degrees. Uncover and bake another 15 minutes to crisp.
In the last 15 minutes of baking, prepare the sauce: In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour to form paste. Add brown sugar, and water, bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Serve over warm bread pudding.
