Frugal Dessert: Apple Custard Bread

in Frugal Food

If your house is anything like mine, then you have lots of stale bread and half eaten apples. And, if you’re anything like me, you hate to throw good food away. In fact, in France there’s a superstition that if you throw bread away, you won’t have food when you need it.

You’ll need: bread: fresh or stale*; apples, butter, sour cream, cinnamon and sugar. The quantities depend on how many half eaten apples you have…

Cube or break the bread into small pieces. Melt enough butter to generously coat all the bread.** Toss together in a large bowl, and add cinnamon and sugar to taste. Grate the apples, then mix with enough sour cream to make it creamy.

If you want the bread to be soft and gooey, put the bread on the bottom and top with the apples. If you want the bread to be crisp and crunchy, put it on top. Bake in a 425° oven until done- about 25 minutes.

*If the bread is really hard I compost it, but otherwise I make this yummy dish.

**Don’t worry if you have too much butter- this is not a low calorie dish!

It is yummy, but it doesn't save well, so you'll just have to eat it all in one go… sorry!
