Apple cinnamon raisin French toast casserole

Brunch is quickly becoming one of my new favorite meals to make, and this is the perfect recipe for it. It is based off this recipe, with a few tweaks.


1.5 sticks of butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 cups milk

6 eggs

1 loaf cinnamon bread (I used Pepperidge Farms)

2 cups raisins

2 large granny smith apples cut into small pieces

2 tablespoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

Melt butter, and mix in brown sugar, raisins, apples and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Layer on the bottom of greased 9X13 pan.

Cut loaf of bread into small (approximately 1/2 inch X 1/2 inch) pieces, and layer on top of fruit mixture.

Whip eggs, remaining cinnamon and milk in a separate bowl until well mixed. Pour on top of bread, ensuring all pieces are moistened. This may require you to press down some bread.

Cover, and place in fridge overnight. In the morning (or evening – breakfast foods shouldn’t be kept only for morning :)), place in oven and bake at 375 degrees, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve warm with butter and syrup. And some sliced strawberries or other fruit. You know, to balance out the 1.5 sticks of butter.
