    Less bowls/steps = I sliced the apples very thin, and put them in a medium skillet with the raisins with a quarter stick of butter to cook them a bit. It plumps the raisins and makes the apples more tender. Then I drained the apple/raisins in a strainer over the baking dish, which greased it nicely, paper-toweling off the excess. Added the warm apple/raisins tothe bread in a bowl, stirred well and dumped into the dish. Then, in the same skillet I poured the milk, brown sugar, butter, vanilla (I used a whole teaspoon) eggs, and I added apple pie spice (could use pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, allspice, any of those) to the cinnamon, and just stirred it all together over medium low heat until the butter melts as directed and pour it over the bread mix in the dish and voila! I baked it nice and long, til it was 'set' and deep golden brown on top. Wonderful wonderful stuff. If I had had some wine or brandy to soak the raisins in.. I would have. YUM.  -  23 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Way too sweet. And I didn't even use the sauce part of the recipe. I will probably try it again, and add just 1/2 - 2/3 cup of brown sugar.  -  13 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    They were wonderful! I made them in muffin tins instead and it turned out beautifully! I didn't like the sauce though, it separated so I ended up just putting a little on top of each muffin when they were about 1/2 baked then finished baking them. I loved them and would reccomend the recipie to anyone!  -  25 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
