Preparation time 25mins
Cooking time 190mins
1 Heat oven to 325°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In large bowl, beat 4 whole eggs, 1 egg yolk and 3/4 cup granulated sugar with wire whisk until well blended. Beat in milk, whipping cream, vanilla and 1 teaspoon cinnamon until well blended. Stir in apples and 7 cups of the bread pieces. Let stand 20 minutes.
Pour apple mixture into baking dish. Lightly press remaining 3 cups bread pieces on top of mixture in baking dish. Brush top of bread with melted butter. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle over top.
Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until top is puffed and light golden brown (center will jiggle slightly). Cool 30 minutes.
In 1-quart saucepan, heat sauce ingredients to boiling over high heat, stirring constantly, just until butter is melted and sauce is hot. Serve warm bread pudding with sauce.
Expert Tips Using bread that is a day or two old is best; it will be firmer and drier than fresh bread. Bread that is too fresh and soft will give you a bread pudding that is too moist and soggy.
If you like, skip making the sauce and top with caramel topping instead.
