This delightful dish, made with day-old raisin bread, is full of cinnamon flavor. “I like to serve it for brunch with sliced bacon and a fruit compote,” writes Barbara Tritch of Hope, Idaho.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices day-old raisin bread
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional maple syrup

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine butter and cinnamon; spread over one side of each slice of bread. Place four slices, buttered side up, in a greased 8-in. square baking dish (trim to fit if necessary). Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Repeat with remaining bread and brown sugar.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake, uncovered, 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve with additional syrup.
