We make this a lot, and I'm not sure who first posted it. *I've always made this with Cinnamon Swirl bread that is sold at Costco, and it makes a big difference in the texture from French bread. Brioche would be a great substitute as well. And while the instructions suggest serving with syrup, no one I've served it to ever uses it.


Serving Size: 6

1 loaf French bread*
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons Karo Syrup
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
fresh fruit

Melt butter and brown sugar and Karo syrup over medium heat stirring. Bring to boil and then pour into 9 x 13 casserole pan.

Slice bread into 1 inch widths and lay over caramel mixture. Mix eggs and milk and vanilla and pour over bread.

Sprinkle top with cinnamon and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate over night. Uncover and bake in 350 degree oven 45 minutes. Serve with fresh fruit and syrup.
