Baked Cinnamon-Apple French Toast
This baked cinnamon-apple French toast can be prepared in advance and then simply popped in the oven. Yum!
3 cups nonfat milk
2 cups liquid egg whites, pasteurized, such as Egg Beaters
3 Tbs honey
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 loaf egg bread, sliced
1 cup apples, (3 ounces), chopped dried
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 Tbs icing' sugar
Whisk milk, egg whites, honey, vanilla and salt in a large bowl.
Trim crusts off 8 bread slices and set aside. Cut the crusts and the remaining bread into 1-inch pieces. Toss with dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg in another large bowl.
Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Transfer the bread mixture to the pan. Lay the reserved crustless slices evenly on top, trimming to fit. Whisk the milk mixture one more time, then pour evenly over the bread. Press the bread down with the back of a wooden spoon, making sure it's evenly moist. Cover with parchment paper, then foil, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 350∞F.
Bake the casserole, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until puffed, set and lightly browned, about 20 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes; dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.
