Ingredients:
1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread, cubed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, diced
1 cup diced peeled apples

Directions:

1. Coat a 9x 13 inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Arrange 1/2 of the cubed raisin bread in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the cream cheese evenly over the bread, and top with the apples. I also like to add extra raisins and cinnamon at this point. Top with remaining bread.

2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, butter and maple syrup. Pour over the bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and press down so that all the bread pieces are soaked. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. I prepare this the evening before Christmas morning.

3. Preheat oven to 325 F

4. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. It can be served with extra maple syrup too!

Personal Notes:
This Strata has become a Christmas family tradition in the Ellsworth home. The boys look forward to this delicious breakfast treat every year! It's not healthy or light on calories, but it's only once a year.
