This is a great desert fit to serve any company. The Raspberry/Strawberry Topping is the key to this recipe. From the Hacienda Antigua Bed & Breakfast altered a tad to our liking. Prep time does not include letting the bread set overnight.

This was wonderful and EASY. I used Raspberry and it gave it a great snap. It was nice and creamy. The topping using raspberries was , in my opinion, a better choice than strawberries. I also used Splenda and You could not tell the difference between that and sugar. Thanks for a great recipe.

Well, this was sure a pleasure. We enjoyed it very much. We had frozen rasberries on hand. The great thing about this is that the combo of nutmeg, orange juice, and vanilla made the flavor excellent, and a winner. Thanks for posting.

What a wonderful breakfast I had this morning. I will confess to using whole wheat bread (thats what I use for everything) and lightening it skim milk and fat free evaporated milk. Quite honestly nobody would care that it's a bit more healthy with the cuts because it is so good! As we are doing a reno and I'm struggling to do the best I can with what I have to work with I simply fork mashed the strawberries, added a bit of Splenda, o.j.. The vanilla, nutmeg, berries and o.j. made this a pure pleasure.
