Bread puddings are a favorite home-style dessert in many countries. This is the Swedish version.

Ingredients

9 slices firm, white bread, cut into halves
2 cups half-and-half (light cream)
1/2 cup EACH sugar and water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 medium-sized tart apples, peeled, cored, sliced
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
2 Tbs. butter or margarine

Directions

1. Place bread slices in a single layer in a shallow pan. Evenly drizzle 1/2 cup of the half-and-half over bread.

In a medium saucepan, mix sugar and water, bring to boiling. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Return to medium heat. Add about a third of the apple slices, and simmer each portion 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Reserve sugar syrup.

3. When all applies are poaches, line a buttered shallow 2 1/2 quart baking dish with about a third of the bread slices; top with half of the poached apples. Make a layer of another third of the bread. Cover evenly with remaining apples. Cover with the rest of the bread.

4. Beat eggs slightly; mix in cinnamon and cardamom, then remaining 1 1/2 cups half-and-half and sugar syrup left from poaching apples. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread. Dot with butter.

5. Bake 15 350 F until top layer of bread is brown and crusty, about 1 hour. Serve hot or at room temperature. Top with whipped cream if you wish.
