“VERY SIMPLE. Used some leftover/dry sourdough bread and just started throwing things together. Eventually I created this. Its not TOO sweet and very filling. I used fat free milk and light butter but you can use anything.”

  1. Cut bread into 1-2 inch cubes and spread a layer on the bottom of a large glass baking dish. (Using HALF the bread cubes).
  2. In a saucepan, warm the milk and butter together long enough to melt butter. (Make sure you do not let the milk boil!).
  3. Once butter is melted, remove from heat. Add brown sugar.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together eggs and vanilla untill well mixed and a little foamy/frothy.
  5. Whisk egg mixture into milk mixture.
  6. Pour mixture over the first layer of bread cubes, making sure to soak them through.
  7. Spread applesauce over the soaked bread cubes evenly and sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, and raisins.
  8. Add the rest of the bread cubes and pour remaining mixture over them. Sprinkle more cinnamon and raisins.
  9. Sprinkle with brown sugar (optional) and/or drizzle with a little maple syrup.
