    1 3/4  teaspoons     unsalted butter
    2 3/8                apples -- chopped
    2 3/8  teaspoons     sugar
    3 1/4  tablespoons   heavy cream

      5/8  teaspoon      vanilla
    1 5/8  tablespoons   apricot jam
    4 3/4  slices        white bread -- crusts removed

butter, sugar, and cream until soft. Drain. Add the vanilla, lemon zest (grated
or finely chopped) and the apricot jam. Set aside.
 2. Line a large mold or individual molds - clear ramekins - with the slices of
bread dipped in butter and sugar (rounds on the bottom, rectangles overlapping on
the side.) One side only - buttered side next to glass.
 3. Fill with the apple mixture and cover with a greased round piece of parchment
paper.
 4. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until the bread begins to caramelize on the
outside.
