 Show mom your skills with 




1/2 cup butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 loaf 2 day-old French bread, cut into 1" slices

5 eggs

1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon orange extract

1/4 teaspoon salt




In a small sauce pan, melt butter and brown sugar, stirring occasionally until smooth. Pour melted mixture into a lightly greased jelly roll pan and spread out evenly over the bottom of the pan.

Arrange bread slices in a single layer to cover the pan (as many as will fit).

Add eggs to a medium bowl and beat for 1 minute, then whisk in half and half, maple syrup, vanilla, orange extract and salt. Spoon mixture evenly over each piece of bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.

When ready to bake, lightly sprinkle the tops of the bread with cinnamon. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees (175 degrees C) for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden then flip all the slices of bread over and broil until the tops are golden.

Top with berries, whipped cream, etc.
