Author Notes: Please believe the ingredients -- this recipe calls for skim milk and the most inexpensive supermarket Italian-ish loaf of bread you can find, and the results are spectacular!! It puffs up beautifully in the oven and tastes absolutely wonderful. I've halved it for a breakfast for 4 and we devoured it. I first tasted this at my friend Shelley's home, and she uses more cinnamon and sugar than I do, so feel free to adjust the spices as desired. —Sandy
- 1 pound loaf inexpensive supermarket French or Italian bread
- 8 large or extra large eggs, slightly beaten
- 3 1/2 cups skim milk
- 3 T + 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon butter (salted is fine)
- 5-6 apples, sliced thin (I like golden delicious)
- Use nonstick cooking spray or butter a 9x13 inch pan.
- Cut the bread into 1.5 inch slices and pack them tightly into the prepared pan in one layer.
- In a large bowl, stir together eggs, milk, 1/2 Cup sugar and vanilla. Pour half of this egg mixture over the bread slices.
- Distribute the apple slices over the bread, and top with the remaining egg mixture.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining 3 Tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon and sprinkle this mixture evenly over everything in the pan. Dot with butter.
- Cover the whole thing and refrigerate overnight or for 6+ hours.
- The next day, or when ready to bake, uncover the pan and bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven 50-60 minutes. Let stand for about 10 minutes, then cut into squares and serve warm (with maple syrup if you'd like) and enjoy!
