TWD and Kogi BBQ Truck Cake

Do you like bread pudding? According to the P&Q for this week's pick, a lot of people don't. I admit that mushy bread didn't look good to me for a long time, either. But then I tried it and loved it ever since. This recipe, chosen by Liz, incorporates caramelized apples sandwiched between apple butter covered bread and covered in custard.
 I halved my recipe, but maybe there wasn't enough custard because it was a little dry. I would love to try this with caramelized bananas and peanut butter (and maybe some chocolate in there somewhere).

On another note, have you heard about Kogi? If you don't live in Southern California, maybe not. It's a series of trucks that drive around LA and OC delivering yummy food. Our good friend loves it, so it was only fitting that this was his birthday cake:

  10. Cute kogi truck! I made a third of the recipe & had lots of custard but I wonder if different bread would absorb it more/less???
