This was demolished! I do have a hint for those who thought parts of it stayed too dry. Instead of layering the bread in the pan then pouring the custard over it, mix up the custard in a very large bowl, then pour your cubed bread into that and mix well. THEN, put a layer in the pan, put on your fruits and then add the rest of the bread and pour over any leftover custard. If you let it soak for a minute in the custard and stir it up well, it makes it nice and evenly moist.
I also used fat free half and half and added about an extra teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg since along with about a teaspoon of vanilla extract since I use that on my french toast normally. 1 granny smith apple and an extra large handful of golden raisins make it perfect. Cube your very cold cream cheese into tiny bits so every bite has a little but doesn't overtake the bite. Good stuff! I think this will go into our weekend guest rotation since it's so easy to put together the night before. Next time, I think I will use egg beaters and light cream cheese to reduce the calorie count but not the flavor. Use real maple syrup and you won't be sorry!
