Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Although I am a huge chocolate fan, I wanted to find a dessert that didn't involve any chocolate and that would still be heart-warming, enjoyable on a cold day. I had also recently bought a set of ramekins for warm desserts, so when I saw this recipe, I showed it to my Hubby and he made it for me. A friend came to visit me while he was busy in the kitchen making sure he was following every step of the recipe.

[This recipe is from Martha Steward's website found here]

This is the deliciousness he made for me:

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding
Entry # 2

(makes 4)

·         2 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled and cut into matchsticks
·         Juice of 1 lemon
·         1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
·         1 day-old 8-ounce loaf brioche ---- (substituted with Hawaiian rolls) 
·         1 1/4 cups heavy cream
·         3 large eggs
·         1/2 cup sugar
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
·         1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Caramel Sauce found here


1. Heat oven to 325 degrees;
2. Place the apples in a separate bowl with the lemon juice in a separate bowl. Cut them to matchsticks or dice them into small cubes.

3. Butter the ramekins. We used 4 oz size.
4. Cut the Hawaiian rolls into small slices of bread.
5. Combine cream, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
6. Begin assembling the ramekins:

Place 1 TBSP of caramel sauce into each ramekin.
Add 1/3 cup of apple into each bowl.

Then 1/3 of the bread into the bowl

7. Place the roasting pan on the center of the oven rack. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and let it bake for 20 minutes. Then remove the foil and let it bake for another 20 min.

[Excuse the dark picture below!!!]

Fill roasting pan with hot water to within 1/2 inch of ramekin tops.

This is the BEST part!

8. Use a towel to invert each of the ramekins to serve for your guests (or for your spouses!) Serve warm with remaining caramel sauce. 

Ready to eat!

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
