    5 large eggs

    3 cups (720 ml) whole milk

    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

    1 tsp ground cinnamon

    1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar

    1/2 cup (100 g) lightly packed brown sugar

    6 cups cubed stale gluten free bread

    Vanilla Bean Sauce Ingredients

    1/2 cup (100 g) lightly packed brown sugar

    1 tbsp cornstarch

    1 large egg at room temperature

    2 Tbsp butter

    1 1/4 cups (300 ml) whole milk (can use dairy-free alternative)

    pinch of salt

    pinch of cinnamon

    1 Tbsp vanilla extract or the seeds from one vanilla bean


    • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, whole milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, granulated sugar and brown sugar until well incorporated and smooth.
    • Add stale bread cubes to custard mixture and toss to coat. Push bread down into custard to cover completely and allow to sit for 30 minutes.
    • Pour bread cubes with custard into buttered baking dish (9 x 9 square suggested). Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

    Vanilla Bean Sauce

    In a medium saucepan add all sauce ingredients and whisk to combine. Heat over medium heat, whisking continuously, until thickened and the sauce coats the back of a spoon, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat.


    Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
