This is a very easy recipe to modify. The first time I tried it, I replaced the raisins with fresh blackberries and used day-old french bread- yummy! The second time I tried it, I used sour dough bread, replaced the raisins with 2 fresh plums sliced, and replaced the cinnamon with 1/2 tsp cardamom and 1/2 tsp orange zest- also yummy! My only issue is that by using bakery bread that I'm slicing myself, I'm overflowing the container at 5 slices. I can't imagince how you can fit 10 slices in one dish! Also, I agree with the other suggestions to let the dish sit and soak for a while before putting it in the oven- I find that if I start my oven once I've put everything together, the pre-heating time is just about right.
