Ingredients

1/2c. unsalted butter
1/2c. (packed) brown sugar
1/2c. maple syrup
1c. coarsely chopped pecans
8 large eggs
1 1/2c. half and half (I think you could use milk instead)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1lb. loaf unsliced challah bread or egg bread, cut into 1 1/4in. thick slices


Stir butter, brown sugar, & syrup in saucepan until melted and smooth.


Transfer to a 13x9x2 glass baking dish. Sprinkle pecans over butter


mixture.


Whisk eggs, half and half, cinnamon & vanilla in large bowl. Dip


bread slices into egg mixture and arrange in a single layer in


prepared dish. Pour remaining egg mixture over bread slices. Cover


with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.


Preheat oven to 350º. Bake uncovered until golden brown and


knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Serve


pecan side up with warm syrup.

Notes

This recipe is so great and you could easily double it to feed a crowd at brunch. I got it out of Bon Appetit a couple years ago.

A dash of local for every season
