Equipment

  • Casserole dish

Ingredients

  • 12 cups whole grain bread (cubed for measuring)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (unsweetened - regular milk works too)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice (no sugar added)
  • 1 cup pecans (crushed - optional for topping)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Cut the bread into bite-sized cubes as you for more accurate measuring.
    The whole grain bread lays on a cutting board, cut into little, bite-sized pieces.
  • Oil and 8 x 11 casserole dish and put the bread cubes into it. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice.
    A bowl sits filled with eggs and pumpkin spice, ready to whisk and pour.
  • Pour the mixture over the bread, being sure to gently stir or toss the bread in the pan to ensure that all pieces soak up some of the mixture. It's okay if there is a little liquid in the bottom of the dish. You just want to be sure that all the bread gets saturated.
    Bread sits in casserole dish with egg mixture poured over it, ready to bake.
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes (will vary by oven), or until all the liquid is gone and the bread has a nice, golden brown tint to it. The idea is to fully cook the egg.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      K – Just a basic loaf of bread should do the trick, but it’s hard to say because loaves are always different sizes.

  2. Can his be mixed and refrigerated the night before baking?

      JoAnn – Sure!

  3. Has anyone tried with Ezekiel bread?
