   5 1/2 c  Cubed fresh or stale

            Bread
     1/2 c  Raisins
       1 tb Caraway seeds ->OR<-
            Anise seeds
       5 c  Diced apples
     1/2 c  Apple bitter
       1 tb Sunflower butter ->OR<-
            Tahini
       1 c  Water
       2 tb Mellow or sweet miso
       2 c  Amazake beverage (original)
            ->OR<-
            Vanilla soy milk
  
   Cube bread and toss in a large bowl with raisins and
   caraway seeds. Stale bread may be used instead of
   fresh. Toss apples in a bolw with bread cubes.
   
   Combine apple and sunflower butter (or tahini), 1 cup
   water, miso, amazake or soy milk, then pour liquid
   mixture over apples and bread. Stir to coat. Spoon
   mixture into a lightly oiled 2-quart casserole dish or
   two 9-inch pie plates or cake pans. Cover with lid
   (oven-proof).
   
   Allow mixture to sit for 2 to 4 hours before baking so
   bread will soak up flavors. Bake covered at 350F for 1
   hour or until slightly firm and mixture pulls away
   from sides slightly. Then remove from oven and spoon
   into individual dessert cups. An ice cream scooper
   works well. Allow to cool slightly and then serve.
