Oh, my goodness, you guys!  I ran across this recipe the other day (Taste of Home) and it is to die for!!  We have made it three times during those cold days that we had a couple weeks back – and, my son asked for it again last night for supper.   I had to say “no” because it certainly isn’t not your most healthy recipe, but would be a GREAT dish for your Easter brunch!   It smells so yummy and tastes even better!   Not that it needs it – but we love it topped with a little vanilla yogurt and some raspberry syrup.  Oh, my!   I can’t wait for Easter to get here so we can make it again!

Ingredients
  1. 12 slices cinnamon bread, cubed (I used Pepperidge Farms)
  2. 5 eggs, beaten
  3. 1 3/4 cups milk
  4. 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided
  5. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  6. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  7. 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  8. 1/4 cup butter, melted
  9. 2 cups fresh raspberries
  10. optional: vanilla yogurt and raspberry sauce
Instructions
  1. 1. Place bread crumbs in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, 1/2 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. 2. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Sprinkle almonds over egg mixture. Combine butter and remaining brown sugar; drizzle over the top.
  3. 3. Bake uncovered, for 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with raspberries. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Notes
  1. Note: If you are unable to find cinnamon bread, just add an extra 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the recipe.
