Hawaiian Apple Bread Pudding

Yield: one 9x13 1x


  • 1 entire loaf King’s Original Hawaiian Bread (round loaf)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 large granny apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • pinch of table salt
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 9 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 TB vanilla extract
  • 1 TB cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350F with rack on lower middle position.
  2. Cut bread into bite size pieces and place in a greased 9×13 pan. Sprinkle raisins and apples over the bread and gently toss the top half just a bit so the fruit is slightly mixed in. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter, sugar, milk, and salt together in a saucepan over low heat. Let mixture cool to just warm. Add applesauce and stir. Stir in eggs (mixture can’t be hot or eggs will cook.) Evenly ladle vanilla over the top. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon and nutmeg over top. Bake 45-55 min or just until middle is set and top is golden brown and puffy. Keep watch after about 35 minutes – if it’s browning too quickly, lightly tent with foil for the remaining bake time.
