Slow Cooker Apple Bread Pudding with Caramel Drizzle

Warm apple comfort food in a slow cooker.

Directions:                   

  1. In a medium sauté pan, melt the butter. Add the apples, sauté for 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and pecans. Sauté 1 minute, remove from heat.           
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream, sugar and vanilla until well combined.   
  3. Add the bread cubes and apple mixture, stir to combine. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Coat a medium to large slow cooker with cooking spray. Stir mixture once more before putting in in the slow cooker.       
  4. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, until knife inserted comes out clean.           
  5. Just before serving, microwave the caramel dip at 30-second intervals until it is a pourable consistency. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of caramel dip over each portion. Top with whipped dairy topping.
