Ingredients

Bread Mixture

12 cups (from 16-ounce loaf) cubed French or Italian bread
1/4 cup orange juice
7 Land O Lakes® Eggs, well beaten
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups fresh raspberries

Topping

1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds

Directions

Heat oven to 325°F.

Spread bread cubes onto 2 ungreased baking sheets. Place onto separate oven racks. Bake, rotating baking sheets halfway through bake time, 25-30 minutes or until dry and just beginning to turn light golden brown. Cool completely.

Spray no-stick cooking spray onto bottom and up sides of 13x9-inch glass baking pan or casserole dish.

Combine all bread mixture ingredients except toasted bread cubes and raspberries in  bowl. Beat with whisk until well mixed. Add bread cubes to egg mixture; toss until well coated. Add raspberries; gently stir into bread mixture until evenly distributed. Spread mixture into prepared baking pan. Cover securely with plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.

Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and corn syrup in bowl until smooth; stir in almonds. Place into resealable food container; refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Heat oven to 350°F.

Crumble topping over bread mixture. Bake 40-50 minutes or until puffed and golden. (Do not over bake.) Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a 'make-again' recipe! So delicious, and great, because you can prepare ahead!
This was great and easily halved for a smaller group.
Looks delicious!! BUT, it's a lot easier to be a great cook when you don't have to care about the health effects of your cooking. This would be a fantastic recipe if it were re-invented as something much less than 650 calories and (gasp!) 37 grams of fat per serving!!
