Ingredients9 h 5 m servings 450
- Spray a 9 X 13-inch pan with cooking spray.
- Spread half of the French bread cubes onto the bottom of the 9x 13 pan. Sprinkle with half of the raisins. Cover with remaining bread cubes. Sprinkle remaining raisins on top.
- Mix eggs, 3 cups Lactaid(R) whole milk, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, white sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until ingredients are well blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over bread mixture in pan.
- Gently press down bread so it is slightly covered by the liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Remove plastic from casserole and place in the oven. Bake uncovered until set and top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
- Whisk powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon Lactaid(R) milk together in a bowl. If too think, add a bit more milk. Glaze should be thick but liquid enough to drizzle.
- Drizzle glaze over warm casserole. Allow glaze to thicken and set before serving, about 10 minutes.
- Cook's Notes:
- One large loaf of French bread should yield about 9 cups (packed) bread cubes.
- This would also be great as a cranberry orange casserole. Leave out raisins and substitute with dried cranberries. Reduce cinnamon to 1/2 teaspoon and add 2 teaspoons orange zest to custard. Glaze leave out cinnamon and substitute orange juice for maple syrup.

All four of my family members really enjoyed this for breakfast-supper tonight. The glaze on top was delicious. I had to cut down the bread slightly (I could not get it to all fit into the pan i...
This recipe was fabulous - I did change it because I had a package of raisin danishes to use up, and I have some lactose intolerant people in my house! So I cut up the danishes, omitted the rais...
Yes I am going to make it again and one change is with the milk, I am going to use Thai coconut milk!
I made this with whole wheat cinnamon bread and it was the bomb...like a nutritional cinnamon roll for breakfast. It was wonderful with sausage and fruit on the side.
I used brioche instead of french bread and it was very yummy, but a tad sweet for my taste. My guests loved it, though, and what did't get eaten was happily taken home to husbands! Easy to mak...
Amazing. made for a sunday brunch and it was TO DIE FOR. Made it just as listed.
This was so good! I can see this being a favorite in this house, it did not take long for it to disappear.
