Notes

This Baked French Toast posted by rosiepie on TOHBB is scrumptious, and will have a repeat performance. I made only half a recipe in an 8 by 8 dish. Next time, I will use only eight 1-inch slices (ten filled the pan too much). I used the same amount of vanilla and spices in the egg mixture, but halved all the other ingredients in the recipe. Did not use syrup or powdered sugar... praline topping was delicious without any additions.

A dash of local for every season
