Apple French Toast Strata

1 (1 lb) loaf cinnamon bread, cubed
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup diced peeled apples (I use extra)
8 eggs
2 1/2 c half-and-half cream
6 Ts butter, melted
2 T cinnamon
1/4 c maple syrup
  1. Coat a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange 1/2 of the cubed bread in the bottom of the dish. Whip cream cheese and sugar together and spread the mixture over the bread, and top with the apples. Top with remaining bread.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, butter, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Pour over the bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap, and press down so that all bread pieces are soaked. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
