Spiced Apple Bread Pudding
To stale bread naturally, store at room temperature in a paper (not plastic) bag for 2 to 5 days. If you don't want to wait, bake sliced or cubed bread on a large baking sheet at 250°F until crisped and dry, 15 to 20 minutes. One 1-pound loaf (12 to 14 slices) yields 8 to 10 cups 1-inch pieces.
Toast nuts before using for the best flavor. Spread whole nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once and checking often, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.
1 starch, 1 1/2 fruit, 1 1/2 fat
