Author: Eva Bakes
1/2cup (1 stick)unsalted butter
3applescored, peeled, and sliced
1loafFrench baguettecut into 1" slices
1 and 1/2cupsmilk of choice
Generously grease a 13"x9" baking pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, apples and raisins and toss well, making sure each slice of apple is coated. Transfer this to your prepared pan and spread it out evenly across the bottom of the pan.
Place the bread in a single layer on top of the apple mixture.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon together. Pour this over the bread, making sure that every single part of each baguette is soaked.
Cover with aluminum foil and chill overnight in the refrigerator.
The next day, remove the pan from the refrigerator. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Bake, covered, for about 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes or until the top starts to turn golden brown.
Allow the casserole to stand for another 5-10 minutes before serving.
Leftovers should be stored, covered, in an airtight container in the refrigerator.Source: Genius Kitchen
