Besides providing top-notch accommodations, Wisconsin B&B Association members are fantastic cooks! We love the fact that this recipe from Inn on Hillwind, Plymouth WI can be prepared the night before and baked in the morning, allowing you to get your beauty sleep!

BAKED APPLE FRENCH TOAST (from WBBA cookbook pg. 232) 

1 loaf French bread, cut in cubes
1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, cut in cubes
2 cups apples, peeled and diced
1 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbsp butter, melted
6 eggs
½ pint heavy cream
2 cups milk
¼ cup maple syrup, plus extra to serve

Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray. Arrange half of the bread in bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the cream cheese over the bread. Top with apples. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Pour melted butter over bread and apples. Top with remaining bread. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, cream, milk and syrup. Pour over bread mixture. Press bread down so all pieces are soaked. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight). Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with warm maple syrup. 
Variations: Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with whipped cream.
Yield: 6–8 servings
