A simple way to make a special breakfast. You can put it together the night before and bake it while you're in the shower. It's like a breakfast bread pudding and you can also add extra raisins or sultanas if you wish.
1 loaf raisin bread, cubed
250g cream cheese, diced
1 cup chopped, peeled apples
125g butter, melted
1/4 cup (65ml) maple syrup

Grease a 22 x 33cm baking dish. Arrange 1/2 of the cubed raisin bread in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the cream cheese evenly over the bread, and top with the apples. If you like extra raisins, add them now. Top with remaining bread.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, butter, and maple syrup. Pour over the bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap, and press down so that all bread pieces are soaked. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 165 degrees C.
Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
