Preparation: 10 min.
Soaking time: Overnight
Baking time: 13-20 min. at 475 degrees (F.)
Yield: 4 servings
- 14-16 slices (1-inch thick) French bread
- 6 eggs
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla and salt
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 2 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
- In a mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Mix until smooth.
- Gradually beat in half-and-half.
- Pour into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish or a 2-inch "half pan", if you're using restaurant gear. A 9x13 baking dish will probably hold more slices.
- Place bread into egg mixture. Turn slices over. Arrange in a baking pan.
- Cover. Refrigerate overnight.
- About 30 minutes before baking, turn slices to soak other sides.
- In a second 9 x 13-inch baking pan, pour half the butter. Arrange bread in pan. Drizzle with remaining butter.
- Bake at 475 degrees (F) for 8 minutes. Turn slices. Bake 5 minutes longer or until golden brown. Serve.

We serve it with real maple syrup, but powdered sugar would also
be good. Jam thinned with a little water or brandy is also tasty.
