Whoa, I must’ve forgotten about this somewhere in the mix. Obviously this was done awhile ago since my hair still has the blonde in it and I am brown now; hopefully you enjoy it regardless.

You will literally think you’ve died and gone to heaven. These are so good, it’s impossible to eat just one or even five. I made these for my brother and sister-in-law who’s staying with us and they disappeared faster than girl scout cookies.


1 loaf of french bread cut into 1/2-inch slices

for the custard:
3 large eggs
1/2 C milk
1/3 C Heavy cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

for the sugar coating:
1 C butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
4 TBS light corn syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

the night before:

butter a 9Γ—13 dish and place the bread slices standing up in the pan.   Prepare the custard by whisking together the eggs, milk, cream cinnamon and vanilla until well combined.  Pour the mixture over the sliced bread making sure to coat all the slices evenly.  Cover the pan with cling wrap and stick in the fridge.

 the morning of:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees

In a large pyrex measuring cup, melt the butter in the microwave until just melted.  Add the brown sugar and corn syrup, whisk well to combine.  Microwave on high again in 30 second spurts until the mixture is bubbly and hot.  Add the vanilla extract.

Pour the sugar mixture over the french toast in the pan, coating each slice well.  Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until puffy and golden brown.

This photo was my inspiration for this look. Plus there are a few tips and pointers for people with hooded eyes. I hope you enjoy!
