  1. Coat a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange 1/2 of the cubed raisin bread in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the cream cheese evenly over the bread, and top with the apples. If you like extra raisins, add them now. Top with remaining bread.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, butter, and maple syrup. Pour over the bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap, and press down so that all bread pieces are soaked. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

I hate to be the odd man out, but I was not impressed with this recipe. It was very plain and mushy--maybe adding less liquid would make it a bit better. I cooked it for over an hour; if you d...

I didn't have the time to let mine soak 2 hours, but it was so tasty! The perfect combination of flavors and it smelled like cinnamon buns while cooking.
