This slow cooker bread pudding uses apples, honey, and challah bread. It’s the perfect dessert for your next Rosh Hashanah dinner or anytime!
This recipe combines 3 foods traditionally eaten on Rosh Hashanah: round challah bread, and apples dipped in honey. Apples being a sweet, symbolic fruit with the honey signifying hope for a ‘sweet’ new year. I’m very conscious that there aren’t a lot of dessert recipes on this blog so with Rosh Hashanah in mind, here is this bread pudding recipe.
Apples – I used gala apples. It really doesn’t matter what type of apple you use because it’s going to be cooked in honey and bread anyway. BUT try to find a sweet one if you can. I used 100% all-natural applesauce but whatever type of applesauce you want to use is up to you.
If you don’t like almond milk then use the milk of your choice. I also spread 2 tbsp of extra applesauce on top. Whether you add 1/3 cup or 1/2 cup of honey will all depend on how sweet you want your bread pudding. If you want your bread pudding on the sweeter side, use more.
Optional (what I like to do) – save a tablespoon of the diced apple and spread it along with 2-3 tablespoons of applesauce on top of the bread pudding before it cooks. You’ll know this is done when a knife is inserted into the center and it comes out clean.Print
