Top Review by Julie F

This was very well received at a brunch I brought it to. I didn't think the apples on top looked very pretty, so I sliced half the french bread and used that on the bottom, layered the apples on top of that, then the second half of the loaf on top of that. I poured half the egg/milk mixture over the apple layer, and another on top of the second layer of bread. Finally, I sprinkled the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the bread right before baking. It turned out pretty and very delicious! I love that it can be made the night before and popped in the oven in the morning. Mine puffed up in the oven and then settled nicely, so I would be sure to plan to let it sit a bit before serving. Having the bread layer on top made it a little less like a bread pudding, as it wasn't as soft as the lower layer of bread. Will definitely make this again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the bread 1-1/2-inch thick.
  2. Coat a 13 x 9" pan with nonstick spray.
  3. Tightly pack the bread slices into the pan.
  4. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, milk, 1/2 cup sugar (or to suit taste), and the vanilla; pour half of the egg mixture over the bread slices.
  5. Evenly distribute the apple slices over the bread.
  6. Top with remaining egg mixture.
  7. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the apples.
  8. Dot with butter cubes.
  9. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  10. The next morning/day uncover the baking pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven, for 50-60 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven then let stand for 10-15 minutes.
  12. Cut into squares and serve warm.
  13. TIP: Brushing the apple slices with fresh lemon juice, will prevent any browning on the slices while in the fridge overnight.
