Servings 8 people


  • 1 loaf of bread (unsliced)
  • 2 cans fruit filling or fresh fruit in bite-sized pieces
  • 12 oz ricotta cheese
  • 8 eggs
  • Splash of milk
  • Pinch cinnamon or nutmeg or spices of your choice
  • Maple syrup


  • Start by slicing your bread pretty thinly and uniformly. Grease a 13×9 pan and line the bottom of the pan evenly with bread. This can lead to some creative cuts in your slicing.
  • Spread about half of your ricotta cheese evenly over bread. We’re going to cover this up, so it doesn’t need to be perfect!
  • Top your ricotta with fruit.
  • Repeat with more bread, ricotta, and fruit. Top with a layer of bread.
  • Mix your eggs with a splash of milk and your spices. Pour evenly over bread.
  • Cover and pop this into the refrigerator overnight. This lets your eggs really soak into the bread. Remove from the fridge 30-45 minutes before you plan to bake this. When you’re ready, heat your oven to about 400 degrees and bake for a minimum of 45 minutes. You can cover with foil for the first half of your cooking time to keep the top from getting too brown.
  • Slice and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup on top.


Bread – Brioche is a wonderful, lovely soft bread to use for this recipe. It soaks up the egg nicely and doesn’t fall apart when you cut into your finished product. Look for a bread that isn’t too dense – a loaf of Italian will do wonderfully, while sourdough isn’t going to absorb your egg mixture as well.
Fruit – You can use any combination of fruit your heart desires. I’ve made this with canned peaches, ricotta, and cinnamon; fresh strawberries, ricotta mixed with cream cheese, and the fruit glaze you put on cheesecake; even pie filling. Some other suggested combos: fresh blueberries slightly macerated with sugar and a touch of Merlot and mascarpone; apple pie filling with extra cinnamon and ricotta; mixed berries glazed with simple syrup and rum with ricotta. There are really no wrong answers here.
