Apple cranberry baked French toast/bread pudding!

Apple cranberry baked French toast/bread pudding! Simply Filling

2 slices of Ezekiel bread cut into cubes in Canada Ezekiel bread is SF or use whatever bread you use
1 egg, 2 egg whites or 1/4c egg substitute
1-2 Tbsp skim milk or fat free cream you want it wet but not totally swimming in liquid a heavier bread will need a bit more more. I used Ezekiel bread and needed 3 Tbsp but if you're using light bread probably 1 tbsp.
1 tsp vanilla extract
sweetener or sugar free syrup amount depending on how sweet you like things
1/2 small apple chopped up if you want really soft apple put them in the microwave for 45 seconds before adding them to the recipe. I liked mine with a little crunch still.
1/4c cranberries
I like to sprinkle either 1/2 tsp of sugar or 1 tsp maple syrup, or sf syrup 0pp on top to make it nice and crusty

Put the cubed bread into a bowl.
In another small bowl I beat the egg added the milk and sweetener and vanilla. Mix and add to the bread cubes. Toss with a spoon till all the cubes are wet and the liquid has been absorbed. If too dry add another Tbsp of milk. Now add the apple and the cranberries. Let sit for a couple of minutes. Stir again. Put into an oven proof dish. Sprinkle the sugar or drizzle the maple syrup or sf syrup on top.

I popped it in my toaster oven at 375 and cooked until starting to brown and crispy on top :) 20-25 minutes. I did drizzle some sugar free pancake syrup on top after it came out.

Do you know or have any guesses why Ezekiel bread is sf in Canada and not in U.S.? There are some other foods that are different in Canada, Great Britain, US. Doesn't make sense to me.

I have absolutely no idea.I think it's a lot healthier than the light breads.
