1 Pre­heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. 2 Place but­ter, sugar, or­ange juice and cream in a 6cm-deep, 24cm (base), 30cm (top) oven­proof fry­ing pan over medium-high heat. Cook, stir­ring, for 8 to 10 min­utes or un­til mix­ture bub­bles and thick­ens slightly. Re­move from heat. Stand for 1 minute to al­low bub­bles to sub­side. Us­ing pic­ture as a guide, care­fully ar­range ap­ple, skin-side down, in caramel sauce (sauce will be very hot). Sprin­kle with hazel­nuts and cran­ber­ries. 3 Whisk eggs, milk, cin­na­mon, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a large shal­low bowl. Dip both sides of bread, 1 slice at a time, into egg mix­ture for 10 sec­onds. Place on top of ap­ple mix­ture in pan, trim­ming to fit, if nec­es­sary, to com­pletely cover. Bake for 45 min­utes or un­til top is golden. Cool for 2 min­utes. Care­fully turn out onto a serv­ing plat­ter with sides. Serve with crème fraîche.
