For the French Toast:

  • 1 16 ounce loaf challah bread, day old, cubes
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 apples (I used gala), peeled and sliced thin

For the Streusel:

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, cold, diced

For the toppings:

  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup


For the French Toast:

  • In a mixing bowl (preferably with one with a spout), mix the the eggs, cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together. Set aside.  
  • Grease the pan and then place half of the bread cubes in the bottom. Layer with half the sliced apples and pour about a third of the egg mixture over it. Repeat again with the remaining bread, apples, and mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • Take the casserole out of the fridge and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle with the streusel and bake for 45-55 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

For the Streusel:

  • Mix the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
