  • 1 loaf of bread Challah or Brioche cubed
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon divided
  • 1/4 tsp ginger ground
  • 4 apples cored, peeled and sliced into wedges
  • 2 tbsp butter you can use vegan butter like Hearth Balance
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 12 cupcake baking pan.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs, milk, 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar, ground ginger and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Add cubed bread to a gallon size zip lock bag and let it soak for 30 minutes
  • To a large skillet over medium-low heat, add the apples, 1/4 coconut palm sugar and 2 Tbsp butter.
  • Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp cinnamon, cook until tender.
  • Remove from heat to cool slightly.
  • Check the bread to make sure all pieces are getting well soaked
  • Next spoon the bread mixture inside the cupcake baking pan leaving room to top with the cooked apples and chopped pecans.
  • Bake on a center rack for 25-30 minutes. You'll know when it's done because the bread and apples will be golden brown and the egg mixture will no longer be wet.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately.
  • Top each slice with any remaining sliced apples and maple syrup.
