  • Preparation Time:



  • 1 (10oz) loaf French bread or Italian bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 tsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp buttter or margarine cut in small pieces
  • pinch of cinnamon


  • Use extra butter to grease a 13X92 baking pan.
  • Cut bread into 1 inch thick slices and arrange in one layer in bottom of pan. (I buy sliced bread)
  • In a large bowl beat eggs and remaining ingredents except butter. When thoroughly mixed pour over bread in pan.
  • Cover with foil and refridgerate 4 to 36 hours. To bake, uncover, dot bread with 2 tablespoons butter and put pan in he oven.
  • Turn oven on to 350 degrees.
  • Bake 45 to 50 minutes until bread is puffy and lightly browned. Remover from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • I serve with maple syrup but the recipe also suggests honey, yogurt or sour cream and fresh fruit. Left overs can be frozen or reheated.
  • Serves 8-9 slices.
