Apple Pie Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

8 cups Baguette torn into rough 2 inch chunks
Butter a 9 x 13 pan. Place the torn bread into the pan and set aside.

For the Custard:
6 large Eggs
6 cups Half & Half
2 tablespoons Sugar
A pinch of Salt

Combine the eggs, half & half, and sugar. Mix well, then slowly pour the mixture over the torn bread in the waiting pan. Set aside while you make the apple pie flavoring.

For the Apple Pie Flavoring:
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Sugar
A pinch of Salt
3 tablespoons Dark Rum
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Apples (peeled, cored and cut into large chunks)

Add all the above ingredients to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then, turn the heat down to a simmer and cover with a lid.
Simmer for 10 minutes or until the apples are somewhat softened.
Pour the syrup and apples mixture over the bread and cream mixture in the baking pan. Stir gently to combine.

Cover the pan with foil and place in the oven to bake for 40 minutes.
Uncover, and allow to brown on top, about 10 minutes.

Allow to cool for a bit before serving.
