Caramel Apple Bread Pudding with Homestyle Buttermilk Syrup

Here’s the scene: it’s cold, windy. The kind of weather that forecasts an indoor day. Well, now that you’re indoors, might as well make the best darn bread pudding recipe these eyes have ever seen. (plan on making two batches)


  • 5-6 stale 1” bread crumbs
  • 4 cups apples, peeled, chopped
  • 4 eggs, 3 yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups Oakhurst Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Oakhurst Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cups Sugar
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of butter, chopped into small pieces

Homestyle Buttermilk Syrup

  • 3/4 cups Oakhurst Buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Place bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the bread cubes are dried out but not toasted.
  2. Spray a 9×13″ baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, toss together bread cubes and apple pieces. Transfer to baking dish.
  3. In the same large bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients except the chopped butter. When combined, continue to whisk while pouring over the bread/apple mixture.
  4. Gently combine the bread and egg mixture, making sure each piece of bread is soaking in part of the egg and milk mixture. Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Evenly distribute the chopped butter over the bread and bake for 40-50 minutes or until the center is set but not dry or burned.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve drizzled with warm Buttermilk Syrup– and a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream if you’re feeling extra indulgent!

Buttermilk Syrup

  1. Combine Oakhurst Buttermilk, sugar, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda in a LARGE soup style pot. This will boil very high.
  2. Bring ingredients to a boil and reduce heat to low, keeping a constant bubble. Stir very frequently, for 8-9 minutes. Syrup will be golden-brown in color when done.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
