So anyway, I needed to change this receipe. I have another receipe that I use at Christmas Brunches, so I decided to kinda adapt this, and hope for the best.
Here is what I did:
Preheat oven to 350deg.
4-5 medium Yellow Delicious Apples-peeled and sliced thinly
3 tbs. Splenda brown sugar blend
3 tbsp. Water
4 stale egg flavored sandwich rolls-broken into 1 inch pieces
½ cup milk (skim)
6 eggs-slightly beaten
21/2 cups of milk (skim)
2 tbsp. Splenda-white
2 oz. Smart Balance butter spread-melted
½ tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. grated orange peel (lemon or dried ok)
1/4 cup raisins
1 tsp. Vanilla
6 small pats of Smart Balance butter spread to put on top
sprayed 9x9 pan-glass or ceramic
Heat heavy saute pan-add first three ingredients-cook until apples softened but not too soft-approx 10 mins.
Let torn egg-rolls soak in ½ cup milk. (If not stale, slice, open, and put in 350 deg. Oven for 10 mins).
Mix eggs and 2 ½ cup milk till smooth, add remaining ingredients except pats of margarine, stir to mix.
Place ½ of bread into pan, then ½ of apples, repeat, then pour egg mixture over top of all. Place margarine pats on top. Bake until brown on top-approx 35-45 mins. Serve warm, Plain or with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
This is what it looked like just before going into the oven. Five minutes after it went in, I thought that I better add some more milk-I added 2cups, pouring over all and continued baking. Did you notice I have it in a metal pan? Well, I started in a 9x13 ceramic dish, but soon realized that there were not enough ingredients to fill it so quickly-without thinking grabbed a metal dish. Which of course meant that after baking and setting for a few minutes, I needed to remove it and put into a
pyrex dish to store leftovers.
Here is what it looked like-ready to serve:
And guess what? SH said it tasted superb! He even suggested that I make it for his family the next time we get together! Now isin't that just the best? I met my goal of making something that he requested, and that reminded him of his Mom.
SS and I of course will eat anything that is even remotely in the dessert family, so we liked it, but SGS passed on it-can't please everyone.
If you make it, please let me know how it turned out.
