Servings: 7
Skills: Intermediate


Ingredients

  1. 1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough, baked and cooled
  2. 1 cup strawberry preserves
  3. 2 cups milk
  4. 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  5. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  6. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  8. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  10. 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  11. Sauce:
  12. 1/2 cup sugar
  13. 3 tablespoons water
  14. 1 tablespoon butter
  15. 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  16. 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  17. 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Cut loaf into 12 equal slices and set aside.

Prepare sauce by combining sugar and water in a heavy pan. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Cover and cook over medium heat 1 minute. Uncover and continue to cook 5 more minutes (do not stir). Remove from heat, and let stand 1 minute.

Add butter and stir until melted. Add evaporated milk, stirring constantly. Return to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until mixture melts and is smooth. Remove from heat, stir in almond extract and salt.

Pour sauce into a sprayed 9x13-inch baking pan. Arrange 6 bread slices in pan. Spread preserves evenly over bread and top with remaining 6 slices.

In a bowl, combine milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour over bread and sprinkle with almonds.

Bake at 350°F 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
