Apple Bread Pudding with a Gooey KAAPI Sauce!

This is a quick recipe based on the traditional Apple Pie using simple pantry staples that will blow you tastebuds! The recipe has been inspired and adapted from Rohan Marley's recipe for Apple Bread Pudding with Coffee-Rum sauce.

As the pudding itself isn't overly sweet, the KAAPI sauce makes for a perfect indulgent accompaniment!

The KAAPI sauce can also be used as a topping on vanilla ice-cream or cut up and had as a fudge!

So here's how you would go about making this dessert.


For apple mixture:

  • 3 granny smith apples; peeled, cored and diced

  • juice of 1/2 lemon

  • 30g unsalted butter

  • 50g sugar

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp all spice

For bread mixture:

  • 10 slices of white bread, torn into bite size pieces

  • 100g sugar

  • 130ml full-cream milk

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp all spice

  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 25g raisins (optional)

For KAAPI sauce:

  • 100g unsalted butter

  • 100g brown sugar

  • 120ml heavy cream

  • 30ml KAAPI decoction

  • A pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 200 deg C; butter an oven proof dish and keep aside.

To make the apple mixture:

  1. Place the diced apples in a bowl and squeeze the lemon juice over it. Set aside.

  2. In a saucepan on medium heat, melt the butter and add the diced apples and all the other ingredients for the apple mixture into the saucepan.

  3. Reduce the heat to low, stirring occasionally for about 5-10 minutes until the apples begin to soften. Remove from heat and set aside.

To make the bread mixture:

  1. In a large bowl, combine together the bread mixture ingredients.

  2. Stir in the cooked apple mixture. You may add a tad more milk if the mixture seems too dry.

  3. Transfer to the buttered oven-proof dish and bake for 30-40mins, until the crust is golden.

To make the KAAPI sauce:

  1. In a saucepan on medium heat, melt the butter and add in the brown sugar. Stir for a couple of minutes until the sugar completely dissolves in the butter.

  2. Turn the flame down to low, add in the KAAPI decoction and thickened cream.

  3. Mix well to combine and keep stirring until the sauce thickens (10-15mins). Take it off the flame occasionally if it starts to boil.

  4. Add a pinch of salt and stir well.

  5. Allow the sauce to cool down for 10 mins once off the flame. The sauce will thicken further.

Slice the bread pudding into wedges and drizzle the sauce over it before serving! Enjoy :)
