Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

STEP 2

In a large bowl, whisk melted butter, sugar, cream/milk, eggs, vanilla and spices until well blended. Gently stir in challah bread. Let stand until bread is softened, about 15 minutes. Stir in raisins, apples and walnuts.

STEP 3

Transfer mixture to a greased baking dish. Gently press down on bread cubes with a spoon to make sure the bread absorbs the custard mix well. Dot with cold butter, spreading evenly throughout mixture. Bake until bread rises and looks golden, around 45 minutes. A trick for checking doneness is to insert a knife near the center. If the knife comes out clean, it’s done!

STEP 4

Serve topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or as is!

Options

French bread, sourdough or dinner rolls will work in a pinch if you aren’t able to find challah bread.
