old bread, cubed
butter (veg oil or earth balance works fine)
milk or half & half (soy milk works fine)
diced granny smith apples (these are sauted with butter/butter sub with some brown sugar until they become less firm)
I mix all these things together in a deep pan til the bread is soggy but not so much that liquid pools at the bottom of the pan. I chill it overnight and bake it the next day until the top is brown and crispy. I serve it with vanilla ice cream, which I would obviously swap for soy or rice ice cream.
If anyone has a good idea that I can get to work, I will of course post the recipe (in a more exact form). Thanks in advance!
