Preheat your oven to 350°F. Butter a 7-inch by 11-inch baking dish (or an 8-inch square glass baking dish) and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs to combine. Add milk, sugar, melted Cabot Unsalted Butter, cinnamon and salt, whisking again until the sugar is dissolved. Add the bread, apples and Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese and stir gently to combine.
Transfer mixture to prepared dish, distributing solids evenly. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until pudding is golden on top and set all the way to the center. Dust with additional cinnamon and serve warm with Maple Butter Sauce (see recipe below).
Maple Butter Sauce:
To make the Maple Butter Sauce, melt Cabot Unsalted Butter over medium-low heat in a small saucepan. Add maple syrup and cook, whisking occasionally, until butter blends with syrup and sauce is slightly thickened. Serve warm over bread pudding.
