You can serve this dessert warm or chilled. The rum at the end is optional but makes for a nice presentation at a dinner party.
it is a delicious dessert! very simple to make and still exquisite. It's really a restaurant-like dessert. - 29 Sep 2008
This was a total flop! The rum wouldn't catch fire. Turns out you have to use high proof rum. Also, all the big chunks of bread made it look unattractive. The apples tasted good at least. Don't do this for a group for the first time with out trying it first. - 29 Sep 2008
Im the Food Service Director at a nursing home. We did this recipe at a candlelight dinner. Set up carts that went through the dining room and flamed each one at each table. Easy to make and the residents got a real kick out of it. - 29 Sep 2008
