applesauce gluten-free bread pudding

so, yes.  bread pudding.  although i think i’m working my way toward a grain-free lifestyle, occasionally i crave bread and sweets and more occasionally, i give in to my kids’ cravings.  but i love that i can leave out ingredients that don’t suit us (trend, schmend – i’m grateful for the availability of ingredients), and that i can add what does.  this gluten-free bread pudding is sweet (but not too sweet), hearty, buttery, and good-memory-inducing.

in college, i had a favorite class: c.s. lewis and literature. we met on tuesday nights, i think, at prof. benyousky’s house. how i loved that man and his precious wife. each week they opened up their home to a group of college kids, fed them lemon tea and bread pudding, and fed their hearts with vision and fervor for the greater things in life.
