- 1 tsp. light olive oil or nonstick cooking spray
- 2 cups milk

Preheat the oven to 325° F. Coat an 8-inch round baking pan with olive oil or with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the milk, egg whites, sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until set. Let stand for five minutes. To make the sauce, heat the maple syrup in a small saucepan over low to medium heat. Stir in the fruit and lemon juice and heat through. Transfer the pudding onto serving plates and serve with fruit-berry sauce. If desired, top with nonfat sour cream.
