  • 1 large loaf French bread cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp dried ground ginger
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp dried nutmeg
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ground cloves optional
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 oz white chocolate shavings created by using a vegetable along the edges


  1. Let bread cubes side out all day or overnight to dry out. You can cover loosely with plastic wrap.
  2. Once bread is dry, in a large bowl whisk together whipping cream, milk, eggs, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, all spice, nutmeg, and cloves. Add bread pieces and cranberries, and toss to well coat. Place in a greased 13" x 9" casserole dish, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge. Chill for 4 to 24 hours allowing the bread to soak up custard.
  3. Preheat oven to 375° F. Cover dish with foil and bake for 35-40 minutes until heated through.
  4. Remove foil and bake for 25-30 minutes more until top has slightly browned.
  5. Remove from oven and top with white chocolate shavings.
  6. Serve with maple syrup.
