Apple (or Banana) and Golden Raisin Oven French Toast

Will’s mom shared this recipe with us and we tried it out this past Sunday. We replaced to apples with bananas (which I like better) and it came out amazing! The bananas become marshmallowy and buttery and need I say more? We finished the whole pan between a few of us throughout the day. Perfect Sunday breakfast/lunch/snack, especially when paired with relaxing in the sun, tea, and coloring.  : )
Apple and Golden Raisin Oven French Toast
1 cup brown sugar
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter, melted
3 apples, peeled, cored and coarsley chopped
1/2 cup golden raisins
6 eggs, beaten
1 and 1/2 cups whole milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons  Cinnamon
1 french baguette, cut into cubes (try and find a smallish one, if you can only find a 1 pound long one, use about 1/2 or a little bit more of it)
In large bowl, mix brown sugar, 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon, melted butter. Stir in apples and raisins and stir to coat evenly. Pour into greased 9×13 pyrex baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Add bread cubes and mix well. Let bread cubes soak up some of the egg/milk mix for 5 minutes of so, until well saturated. Pour over apple, butter, brown sugar mix in the baking dish. Take the back of a spoon and tamp down the bread cubes well. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
in the morning, preheat over to 375. Bake covered for 40 minutes. Remove foil cover and bake 5 minutes more. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. I cut mine in squares and sort of flipped them onto the plate so that the apples were on top!
