This is one of my absolute favorite things to make when we're at the river, and especially when we have company. It's so easy to mix up the night before. And sometimes, I'll make two of them up and have one for Saturday morning and one for Sunday morning. It's so good, no one complains about eating it twice!!
1 Loaf French Bread, cut in 3/4" pieces
1 Cup light brown sugar
1/2 Cup butter
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
2 Cups Milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavor
Mix together in a small saucepan on the stove the light brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Cook until syrupy.
Mix together the eggs, milk and vanilla flavor.
Grease a 9X13 baking dish. Pour in the syrup mixture. Lay the French bread on top of the syrup. Pour egg mixture over the bread. Sprinkle with Cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cover the pan and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 or 375 for 45 minutes.
Have a great day!!
Peace and Love (and happy eating)! LOL...I'm feeling better and am finally getting an appetite back (can you tell)
