Servings: 8
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 1 hour


  • cooking spray
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried apricots, soaked in 2 tablespoons brandy for 5 minutes
  • 1 large baking apple, cored, peeled, and diced small
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup egg substitute
  • 2 ¼ cup 1% low-fat milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Trim and discard the crusts off each bread slice. Thinly butter each slice and cut into quarters. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine the soaked apricots, apple, and raisins. Place half of the fruit mixture into the prepared dish. Mix the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/3 of the mixture over the fruit.
  4. Top with half of the bread quarters, the remaining fruit mixture and another 1/3 of the sugar mixture. Arrange the remaining bread quarters on top, buttered side up.
  5. Whisk the egg substitute and milk together, and pour over the bread. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 of the sugar mixture.
  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the dish for at least 10 minutes before spooning into dessert bowls.  Optional:  Slice some bananas onto the pudding before serving.
