I did not realize how much of a sweet tooth I am until I sat at my desk to write this post. Today’s recipe it can either be served either as a breakfast dish or as a dessert.  I know the title can be deceiving, furthermore only associate with breakfast, but if you skip the maple syrup, make yourself a warm cup of tea or coffee, voila, you have dessert ready to be enjoyed.

With this recipe, I used sweet Hawaiian Bread, however you can use also Challah loaf or brioche bread. If the bread is a day only even better.

While assembling the dish make sure the fruits are evenly distributed on top of the bread, which makes for even cooking, and the middle will not be soggier and the outer of the dish a bit dry. And of course, time permitting letting it rest overnight in the refrigerator will allow all the flavors to blend with others.

What I love the most of this dish is the simplicity of it. An old recipe that will withstand time and the most finicky palates.
