Salted Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Slow Cooker Bread Pudding

Are you ready for fall?  It’s just my favorite time of the year.  Fall is the best time for baking with apples, pumpkin, cinnamon and spices…all perfect ingredients for a yummy treat. 

Now that apple season is in full swing, I wanted to share one of my favorite easy-to-make desserts – Slow Cooker Apple Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Drizzle.  This recipe is so easy to make and works for a dessert or even breakfast! 

Apple Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Drizzle

This mouth-watering recipe starts with tender, sweet brioche bread.  I found these delicious Brioche Buns and they make the perfect base for this delicious dessert. 

ALDI Brioche Buns
Cube your bread for your bread pudding

Once you have your brioche buns cubed, it’s time to caramelize the apples.  Put the diced apples in a skillet with some butter and cook over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, just until the apples start to soften. 

Then add some chopped pecans (optional) and brown sugar and continue to cook for another minute or two.  This creates an amazing glaze all over the apples.

The creamy custard is a perfect blend of eggs, milk and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger that come together to create a bread pudding that is just bursting with fall flavor. 

mixing your ingredients for your apple bread pudding

You can bake this Apple Brioche Bread Pudding in a slow cooker or even an electric pressure cooker using the slow cooker setting.  Quick Tip: If you are using your pressure cooker for this recipe, set the temp setting to NORMAL instead of low.  This seems to be the best equivalent to the low setting on a slow cooker. 

Whichever cooker you use, just remember to line the insert with parchment paper to help prevent any sticking.

This bread pudding is done in no time.  Just mix all the ingredients together, pour them into the lined cooker, and bake for 3-4 hours on LOW (or NORMAL) setting.  Baked to perfection!  To top things off, drizzle your bread pudding with salted caramel and serve with vanilla ice cream

Slow Cooker Apple Bread Pudding makes a great dessert (or breakfast) for family gatherings or your holiday get-togethers.  How delicious is this!?!

  1. Is it possible to make this in a 9 x 13? And if so what would I put it on and for how long… Would love to be able to bake this but would only be able to do it in a 9 x 13… Thank you thank you

    1. I haven’t tried it, but I would probably bake it at 350 degrees for 30-40. Let me know how it works out for you!
