Ingredients

  • 8 oz French or Italian Bread, cut in 1-inch thick slices
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • Pinch Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Maple Syrup
  • Assorted Fruit (Bananas, Strawberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, etc.)

Instructions

  1. Grease a 1 1/2 quart (deep) baking dish. Arrange the bread slices in the baking dish in two rows, overlapping the slices. (You may need to "smush" the slices down to help fit the pan).

  2. In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Whisk in the cream, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Evenly pour the mixture over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  3. The next morning, remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  4. In a bowl, stir together brown sugar, chopped pecans, flour, and salt. Grate the cold butter on top and mix until blended and crumbly. Sprinkle the mixture over the bread in the baking dish.

  5. Bake casserole, uncovered, until browned and the inside is set but soft. About 30-40 minutes depending on baking dish size and shape. Cool slightly.

  6. Serve warm. Dust with powdered sugar, drizzle with warm maple syrup and add your favorite fruit.
