Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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


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.
