Serves 12 people


  • 1 pound loaf cinnamon raisin gluten-free bread, cubed
  • 1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese diced
  • 1-1/2 cups peeled and diced apples
  • 1-1/2 cup raisins
  • 8 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups half and half or cream
  • 6 T. butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Coat a 9×12 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange half of the cubed raisin bread in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the cream cheese over the bread (put the cream cheese in the freezer for easier dicing). Top with diced apples; sprinkle raisins evenly over all. Top with remaining bread cubes.

  2. In a large bowl beat the eggs with half and half, butter, and maple syrup. Pour this over the bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and press down so that all bread pieces are soaked. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 325 F. Bake for 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.


  5. Mix the brown sugar, cream, butter, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk while cooking for 5 minutes or until the sauce gets thick. Add vanilla and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and pour into a jar.
