Ingredients

  • 6 oz baguette bread cut into chunks
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tsp cinnamon divided into 2 and 1
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 oz raisins
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 6 oz red apples peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 oz almonds
  • 2 oz walnuts
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Add cinnamon and whisk well.
  • Add milk and vanilla extract, and stir until everything is well combined.
  • Sieve the egg mixture into a large bowl of bread chunks. Gently give it a toss to coat them evenly in the egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Soak raisins in 1/4 cup of warm water.
  • Melt butter over low heat. Add apples, sugar, and cinnamon, and cook for 10 minutes. Add soaked raisins and raisin water, and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Toss the soaked bread with the room-temp cooked apple and nuts. Pour the mixture into a large baking dish, foil, and bake for 45 minutes.
  • When it’s done, take it out of the oven. Add confectioner’s sugar to a sieve and gently dust all over the surface of the casserole.
  • Divide the casserole into four with a knife and carefully lift each piece out. Place onto serving plates and drizzle with maple syrup to serve.
