Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the bread, apple, blueberries and pineapple in large mixing bowl. In separate bowl, combine the cream, eggs, sugar, butter, brandy, vanilla, cinnamon and orange zest and whisk until well incorporated. Pour the mixture over the bread and fruit, toss and let soak in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Transfer the bread mixture to the pan, making sure the bread is submerged in the liquid. Cover with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil and bake for 2 hours. Uncover and bake until the top is browned, 30 to 45 minutes more. Let cool before serving.
