I use a 2 quart Corelle dish with approximately 3 inch sides. This way it puffs up in the center and then collapses after baking. Making a crunchy top. It makes around 6-8 servings and I have used raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, peaches. All are very good.
I put 4 broken pieces of bread in the bottom, then fruit, then add the remaining 3 pieces of bread on top. After adding the custard, press all pieces down with fork and let sit for a few minutes.
Dot with butter and dust with sugar & cinnamon. Bake at 375°F For one hour or until a knife comes out clean.
Spoon into bowl and drizzle the sauce on as much as you like.
