Chef Maria Cummins
loaf of bread Challah or Brioche
cored, peeled and sliced into wedges
you can use vegan butter like Hearth Balance
coconut palm sugar
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.
