La Vida Dulce Bread Pudding

OK, here's my entry :

La Vida Dulce Bread Pudding – serves 6 to 8

5 cups Bolillo bread cubes from about 2 large rolls, diced

½ cup dried cranberries

1 medium apple, peeled, cored and diced

3 large eggs, beaten

1 – 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 ½ cups hot water

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon almond extract or dark rum, optional

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan or 9-inch cake pan. Place bread cubes, cranberries and apple in pan, evenly distribute. In a large bowl mix eggs, condensed milk, water, butter and then add remaining ingredients. Pour over bread cubes, lightly press down to moisten completely. Bake 40-50 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired. Store in refrigerator up to two days.
