Apple Baked French Toast |

Apple Baked French Toast


  • 6 slices day-old sourdough bread, cubed, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins, optional (I left these out)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk (I used 3/4 cup skim milk and 1/2 cup cream)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg
  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup


  1. Place half the bread cubes in a lightly greased 11x 8 inch baking dish.
  2. Distribute cream cheese cubes evenly over bread cubes.
  3. Top with apples and raisins; cover with remaining bread cubes.
  4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together.
  5. Slowly pour over bread mixture; be sure bread is completely covered.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  7. Preheat oven to 375°; bring strata to room temperature before baking.
  8. Bake, uncovered, 50-55 minutes, until set.(If you don’t want a crunchy top try to cover it for the first 25 minutes of cooking and the cook it uncovered for the remaining 25 minutes).
  9. Let stand 10 minutes; sprinkle with powdered sugar or pass maple syrup at the table.
  10. Cut into squares and serve. Serves 12.
