1 In a large bowl, combine the bread and milk. Let stand until the liquid is absorbed.
2 Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the pears, apples, and sugar. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. If there is a lot of liquid in the pan, uncover it. Cook until the fruit is very soft and the juices are thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes more.
3 Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
4 Beat the eggs, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Stir the mixture into the soaked bread. Add the cooked fruits and raisins and stir well. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5 Serve warm or at room temperature. Store covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
