This breakfast casserole will appeal to those who prefer sweet French toast with syrup and fruit over savory hash and eggs for breakfast. Cubes of French bread are mixed into a custard made with buttermilk, apple cider, vanilla seeds, and cinnamon and left to soak overnight. The next morning, the bread mixture is layered with apples and dulce de leche, then baked, for a simple, rich breakfast casserole. Or you could save it for dessert.
Game plan: The bread-custard mixture needs to soak overnight, so plan accordingly.
You’ll need to make the dulce de leche before you begin.
