Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Yum, Yum, Yum. It tastes like fall.

4 c soft bread cubes (french bread)
2 1/2 c peeled and sliced apples
1 c brown sugar
1 3/4 c milk
1/4 c butter
1 t ground cinnamon
1 t vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c Caramel ice cream topping

1/4 c white sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1/3 c milk
1/2 c butter
1 t vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine bread and apples. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 c brown sugar, 1 3/4 c milk, and 1/4 c butter. Cook and stir until butter is melted. Pour over bread mixture in bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together cinnamon, 1 t vanilla, and eggs. Pour bread mixture into prepared dish, and pour egg mixture over bread. Drizzle caramel over top. Bake in preheated oven 40 to 50 minutes, or until center is set and apples are tender.

While pudding is baking, mix together sauce ingredients (except vanilla) in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat, and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Serve over bread pudding (I prefer under). Drizzle additional caramel sauce over top if desired.
