Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
