Baked French Toast

The other night my mom made baked French toast for dinner. She'd never made it before, but she found a recipe for it online and she decided to try it. She found lots of recipes for baked French toast online, but the one she decided to go with had a brown sugar/butter mixture on top. It was so amazing! My friends Tammy and Justin came over to visit me that night and my friend Tammy asked me to post the recipe on my blog. Here it is:

Ingredients:
--
1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut in 1 inch slices
-- 8 eggs
-- 2 cups milk
-- 1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
-- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-- 3/4 cup butter
-- 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
-- 3 tablespoons light corn syrup

Directions:
1. Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover and refrigerate overnight.
2. The next morning, preheat oven to 350°F. In a small sauce pan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat until bubbling. Pour over bread and egg mixture.
3. Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

It was so yummy and it tasted more like a dessert than anything else! (My mom put pecans on top of the bread slices after she poured the brown sugar and butter topping on. This made it even better!) It's definitely worth a try!

You CAN believe this stuff is good! I used homemade cinnamon swirl bread when I made it. The bread had good substance. It was SO tasty!

I make something like this on Christmas morning, only I cut a slit in the bread and put a pat of cream cheese and some pie filling (usually berry of some sort, but peach and apple are really good too!) It is SO yummy.....and rich, that is why I only make it a couple times a year! :) (and now I am considering it for dinner sometime next week LOL)
