Loved this recipe. Instead of nutmeg I used pumpkin pie spice. I also sprinkled some crushed up almonds before I put it in the oven and turned out great. Would recommend this recipe. Top with chia seeds and whipped cream.

My daughter shared this recipe with me and I am so glad she did. We both made it the same day. I had all the ingredients and it was easy to make. I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg, brown sugar. It is so delicious. I sprinkled some confectioner's sugar on top. Pinned it already! Thank you for sharing. PS Baked for 55 mins, small convection oven.

Ovens differ; I baked it 35 minutes and prep time took a little longer because I crushed some walnuts and cubed the bread smaller.
