Ingredients

  • 7 oz stale french bread
  • 1 cup tepid milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 12 oz sour cherries pitted and drained, fresh or jarred
  • 1 oz butter
  • 3 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 370°F and grease a 7"x11" sized baking pan.
  • Cut the bread into bite-sized pieces and put it into the pan. Pour the tepid milk on top and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff and set aside.
  • Mix the butter, egg yolks and sugar together until the mixture becomes fluffy.
  • Fold the egg mixture, the stiff egg whites and the drained and pitted cherries into the bread and milk mixture. Sprinkle some butter on top and bake for 40 minutes.

Notes

This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a larger pan. The bake time will be slightly longer.
Day-old bread with a nice crust is perfect for this recipe. Cut your fresh bread in chunks and let sit out overnight.
Instead of cherries, try strawberries or blueberries. Apple slices will be perfect, too.
