This spiced fruit bake is a fast and easy breakfast casserole made with apples, pineapple, pears, peaches, pecans, pomegranate seeds, and a touch of cinnamon.
Morn relieve matter is the inviolable finest (especially after a unsound, diligent holiday) and this spiced production heat casserole is one of my selection make-it-and-forget-it breakfast dishes.
Just prepare the recipe up until you’ve poured the hot sugar sauce on top, then cover and chill in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to bake, let the casserole warm up on the countertop for 30 to 60 minutes, then bake and finish the recipe as written.
