Ingredients

  • 12 oz French baguette cut into 1-inch cubes, about 5 cups
  • 8 oz cream cheese cut into 20 cubes
  • 21 oz cherry pie filling
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup the real stuff!
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Spray an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place half of the bread on the bottom of the dish.
  • Place the cream cheese cubes on top of the bread.
  • Spoon half of the cherry pie filling on top of the cream cheese.
  • Top with the remaining half of the bread cubes.
  • Whisk together remaining ingredients (eggs, milk, half and half, syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla).
  • Pour over the top of the bread layer.
  • Spoon the remaining pie filling over the top and cover with foil.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Let french toast sit while the oven is preheating, allowing the bread to absorb some of the egg mixture.

  • Let cool slightly before serving with additional maple syrup if desired.
