I made this recipe many years ago for a morning 65th wedding anniversary celebration. It is quick and easy, not to mention delicious. I serve this when i have overnight guests. The smell when it is baking, has my company running to the kitchen.

Pour over bread.Continue to turn bread over several times, until all of the liquid has been absorbed.Cover and refrigerate overnight.In the morning, in a bowl, combine bannanas, frozen strawberries, sugar and apple pie spice. Stir until the fruit is coated. Pour into the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish and top with the prepared bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 450 degrees. Place each toast on a dessert plate and top with the fruit mixture. Follow with a dollop of cool whip or ready whip out of a can.
