1. Whisking together the eggs in a large mixing bowl to combine. Whisk in the milk, cream, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the bread to the bowl and use a rubber spatula to toss the mixture until the bread has absorbed the liquid.
2. Coat the bottom and side of the inner pot with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the bread mixture to the inner pot, pouring any remaining liquid on top.
3. Close and lock the lid. Set the valve to Venting. Attach the condensation collector, Press Slow Cook, and the Slow Cook or Adjust button to select the highest temperature ("More"). Use the - or + button to set the time to 2 hours.
4. When the cooking time is finished, press Cancel and remove the lid. Serve hot, scooped into bowls and topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon, if desired.
