*If you received an incomplete post last week, I apologize for the issues. With all updates, comes some glitches, but I’m happy to say we are back up and running just in time to make this Halloween treat.

Bread ends-I for one am a lover. Whether you call them bread ends or bread heels, I feel like they are the best part of the bread. They also make for a really easy eggless caramel apple bread pudding. My hubby doesn’t eat eggs so I don’t always have them in the house, but I do always have milk handy for my morning coffee. A little milk, brown sugar, an apple, a few caramels, cinnamon, ginger, and powdered sugar turns plain slices of bread into an ooey-gooey caramel treat. No bread heels? No problem just use the slices or even a croissant. The steps are the same, simply soak, fill, fold, and bake…and, of course, we are using the apple core!

The apple core makes a flavorful apple juice that is used to make the glaze for the pudding. You’ll also have enough leftover to make a cup of apple core tea to sip while waiting for the bread pudding to bake. I use the hot apple core juice to steep some black tea, so nice with a cinnamon stick or a splash of bourbon, too! Tea lover? Pineapple Peel Tea.

In our family, everyone’s glaze ratio varies from just a drop to do not stop! So, I like to make these into individual servings which also makes them easy to freeze. Having these handy in the freezer ready to pop in the microwave anytime a caramel apple craving hits is a treat but topping them with vanilla ice cream is a real big treat.

Put on your TO COOK IS TO CREATE Thinking Cap: What other seasonings and flavors could you add? It’s delicious with eggnog and vanilla. What other fruit could you use? Peaches are sweet. What other type of bread? Hubby loves his made with raisin bread. I dislike raisins so just another reason why I love to make individual servings. No caramels? Use leftover Halloween candy-you must give Snickers a try! Want to jazz up the glaze? Substitute your favorite liqueur, bourbon, or brandy for part of the apple core juice.
