  1. In a medium bowl, add eggs, milk, and sugar, and mix until smooth.
  2. Cut out the inside of the bread: with a knife, cut into the loaf, about ½ inch away from the edge until you’re just about to the bottom. DO NOT CUT THROUGH. Cut all sides.
  3. Place the loaf on its side and ½ inch away from the bottom, make one slit through the bread without cutting through the other side.
  4. Gently pull out the cube you just cut. There will now be the inner loaf and the outer piece.
  5. Cut the inner loaf into small cubes.
  6. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and set aside with the egg mixture.
  7. Lightly dip each side of the bread and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar.
  8. For the outer piece, brush the egg wash along the inside, then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar to lightly coat the sides.
  9. Place the cubes and the outer piece on a lightly oiled, parchment-lined baking tray.
  10. Bake at 350°F/180°C for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Place cubes into the outer piece and dress it with blueberries, strawberries, ice cream, and maple syrup.
  12. Enjoy!
