Ingredients


Makes: 12 servings, prep time: 20 minutes + 3 hour
  • Filling:
  • 2 pears, unpeeled, chopped
  • 2 oranges, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Apple Pie Spice, or Epicure’s Spices for Fruit Crumble
  • 1-2 Tbsp (15-30 ml) sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) butter, cubed
  • French Toast:
  • 1 large baguette, sliced into 12 thick pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C (250 ml) milk
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Apple Pie Spice, or Epicure’s Spices for Fruit Crumble
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) unsalted butter, melted, divided

Preparation


 
  • For the filling, place pears and oranges in (p.1004212). Gently stir in Apple Pie Spice and sugar. Dot butter overtop. Cover and microwave on high until fruit is soft,approximately 3–4 minutes.
  • For the toast, cut a small hole in the bottom crust of each slice. Widen each hole with your finger.
  • Spoon filling into each hole. Stir any leftover filling into maple syrup for a topper.
  • Arrange stuffed slices in a 9” x 13” (23 cm x 33 cm) baking dish – it’s okay to bunch together for the next step.
  • In a bowl, using Piano Wire Whisk, whisk eggs with milk, sugar, and Apple Pie Spice. Pour over stuffed slices. Turn slices over to soak up all the egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours, or overnight.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 450° F (230° C).
  • Brush Sheet Pan with half of the butter. Arrange slices so they don’t touch.
  • Bake 8 minutes. Remove, brush with remaining butter, and turn slices over. Continue to bake until toasty and golden, approximately 8 more minutes. Dish up with maple syrup and fresh orange and pear slices.
