Description

This dessert is perfect for holiday time and would be very fitting for Christmas morning breakfast. If you’re not keen on the pomegranate arils, even though it gives this a very refreshing and sweet crunch, try using dried cranberries reconstituted in Grand Marnier.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Low Fat Milk
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoons Fresh Grated Lemon Zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Grand Marnier
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 loaf Brioche Bread, Cubed
  • 1 cup Pomegranate Arils, Plus More For Garnish
  • 4 whole Granny Smith Apples, Cored, Halved And Cut Lengthwise Into Slices
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Sugar

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Butter the bottom and sides of a round 2-quart baking dish and set aside. You can also use eight 4 ounce ramekins.

Heat milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring, until steaming, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn off heat and let the milk cool slightly.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl until blended; gradually whisk in sugar. Slowly whisk in the hot milk until blended. Whisk in vanilla, zest, Grand Marnier, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.

Add bread and pomegranate arils to the milk mixture; gently fold together. Press down lightly with the back of a large spoon. Cover and set aside at room temperature.

In a medium sized bowl toss the apples in the lemon juice.

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and add the 1/4 cup butter and swirl until melted and starts to foam. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup sugar over the melted butter. Arrange the apple slices on their sides in the pan in an even layer. Without stirring, let the apples begin to brown just slightly. Remove the pan from the heat when they do. You don’t want to overcook the apples too much because they’ll continue to cook in the oven.

Use a fork to transfer the apples to the prepared baking dish, arranging them decoratively in a circle and slightly overlapping them if necessary. Use a heatproof silicone spatula to scrape any remaining syrup over the apples.

Set the baking dish in a shallow baking pan. Spoon the bread and custard mixture into the baking dish. Press down on the bread until it is submerged in the custard. Place the baking dish (inside of the baking pan) in the oven. Add warm water into the shallow baking pan until it is a quarter of the way up the sides of the baking dish.

Bake until the pudding is browned on top and set in the center, about 1 hour. Carefully remove the pan from the oven. Transfer the baking dish to a wire rack and let cool.

To serve, run a knife around the edge of the pudding. Place a serving platter over it and invert the pudding onto the platter. Garnish with powdered sugar, caramel sauce, and pomegranate arils.
