In large non-reactive saucepan, combine fruits and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium, simmer uncovered until fruits are tender, about 20 minutes. Add vanilla, sugar to taste and cinnamon. Cover, let steep 10 minutes.
Lightly oil bottom of 7 or 8 inch non-reactive mold or glass bowl. Ladle enough juice from fruit mixture to cover bottom. Lay down bread slices to form layer, tearing small pieces to fill in gaps. Ladle 1/3 fruit mixture over bread. Repeat process with bread and fruit for two more layers, (3 bread layers in all) ending with fruit. Lay plastic wrap over last layer. Top with plate that fits inside mold. Weight plate with canned goods. Re frigerate, covered 12 hours or overnight. Set mold in larger container to catch juices that run over. To serve, invert onto serving plate. Cut into wedges. Other fruits may be substituted to your taste.
