Recipe by SusieQusie
READY IN: 40mins


  • cooking spray
  • 14
    cup egg substitute (or use 1 egg)
  • 2
    tablespoons nonfat milk
  • 2
    slices day-old whole grain bread (denser breads are your best bet)
  • 1
    tablespoon chopped pecans
  • 13
    cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 12
    teaspoons butter


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly coat the interior of 1 oven-proof bowl with cooking spray.(try a soup bowl with a handle or any baking dish that is about 4" across and 2" deep).
  • Trim bread slices to a shape and size that will fit the bowl.
  • In another larger bowl, whisk egg and milk, then place bread slices in egg mixture until liquid is absorbed.
  • Combine nuts and syrup in the bottom of the ovenproof bowl, and dot the surface with the butter.
  • Place the soaked bread slices on top---they should not reach past the lip of the bowl.
  • Place bowl on a baking sheet to prevent drips, and place in the preheated oven.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until top is lightly browned and center is firm.
  • Remove from oven and allow to set for about 10 minutes.
  • Invert bowl onto a plate, remove bowl and serve.
