Sauce recipe adapted from www.cajundelights.blogspot.com 

 
 Start with a loaf of French bread. Slice and cube the bread and put into a large bowl.

 
Now let the bread sit out uncovered overnight so it becomes crunchy and stale.
This with make the bread absorb liquid better and not become soggy and fall apart.
If you do not have time to leave it out you can lightly toast the bread cubes until crispy.

Mix the butter and brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl.

Add eggs, International Delight creamer, and vanilla and mix well.

Pour mixture on top of bread and stir until all bread is incorporated. Let sit for about 30 minutes to absorb all the custardy goodness!


Peel, core, and dice the apples then toss with lemon juice so they will not brown.

My pup Dylan loves when I bake with apples because he gets to eat the cores! 
He was a happy boy today!

Once the bread has absorbed the sauce add pecans, apples, and raisins.

Spread the mixture into a greased baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.

Hot out of the oven, golden, moist, and delicious!

Five ingredients make a delicious sauce for the bread pudding.
Simply melt butter, evaporate milk, vanilla and brown sugar in a saucepan then mix in pecans.

Serve warm on top of bread pudding.

 Dessert's served!
