  • 10 cups (2.5 L) cubed (1-inch/2.5 cm) egg bread
  • 3 cups (750 mL) diced Ontario Apples (about 3 medium apples)
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 6 Ontario Eggs
  • 3 cups (750 mL) Ontario Milk
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) Ontario Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vanilla
  • Ontario Maple Syrup


Spray 13-x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish with vegetable spray; spread half of the bread in dish.

In medium bowl, toss together apples, sugar and cinnamon; scatter half over bread. Top with remaining bread and apples. In same bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup and vanilla; pour over bread mixture.  Press down gently with spatula to coat in liquid. Let stand for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature while preheating oven.)

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and egg mixture is set.  Drizzle with warm maple syrup.

Tips: For extra fiber, flavour and time-saving, leave the skin on the apples.  Skip cutting the bread into cubes and let the kids tear the bread into pieces.  Delicious with slices of Ontario Peameal Bacon.
