"Okay folks - have made this twice, 1st time as the original recipe called for and the 2nd time, took into account all the reviews.... Used 1/2 cinnamon raisin bread and half french bread, added nutme..." See moreg, increased the eggs to 8 and the cooking time to 1 hour with the last 25 minutes uncovered! Same amount of cinnamon... Fed eight hungry BIG men who sang my praises. This is definitely a keeper!!!"
"The flavor for this recipe was very good. The one thing I would change the next time I make it would be to use a loaf of Pepperidge Farm's Cinnamon Swirl or Cinnamon Raisin Swirl French Toast Bread. ..." See more I would also cube the bread in one inch pieces as opposed to just keeping it in slices. It is much easier to serve if the bread has been cubed."
"I am having a New Year's Eve brunch party for my son's first birthday, and have been experimenting with recipes. This one is making an appearance! It turned out great, especially thanks to the review..." See mores. The only thing I am going to do differently when I make it on Friday night is use 1/4 cup butter instead of 1/2 cup....there was a buttery film swimming underneath the bread. We had to drain it, no biggie. Per other's suggestions, I used Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Cinnamon French Toast Bread, cubed (since I will be feeding a large crowd). Because of the bread, I omitted the cinnamon, except for a dash of cinnamon to the apple mixture. I also omitted the raisins, personal preference. I also soaked the bread cubes only in the egg mixture, instead of pouring it over.......I agree with the other reviewer, why would you want your apples swimming in egg? Yuck. This way worked great.....the casserole ended up sitting in fridge for 14 hours before being baked, (1/2 hr covered, 15 min uncovered) and the bread was PERFECT! Puffy and moist, but not soggy. Thank you for a fantastic brunch recipe! I tried Creme Brulee French Toast also off this site, not nearly as good as this! 1/1/06 - this was a HUGE hit at the brunch!!"
