you will love this.
i made it for bible study and they went ga-ga over it.
i made it for my family this weekend and craig said "THIS is blog-worthy"
so you need to make it too.
melt 1 stick of butter then add in 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 t. cinnamon and stir together.
pour into a 9x13 pan covering the bottom.
then layer slices of bread on the sugar mixture with the crusts removed.
(it would probably just as good with the crusts on....)
i used 15 pieces of bread.
fill in the holes with smaller pieces.
in a mixing bowl whisk together 2 cups of milk and 6 eggs.
pour over the bread.
put it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
when it looks baked and golden, pull it out and drizzle syrup over the top.
put it back in the oven under the broiler until brown and bubbly.
NOTE: this step takes very little time.
i set my timer for two minutes and let it ding twice. (i was putting on my make-up.....)
i opened my oven to a huge cloud of smoke and set off my fire alarm.
i had to pick off the burnt parts before i could take it to bible study.
so be careful with the broiler step.
this one is kind of burnt too...but it'd too good to matter.
when you serve it, flip it over so the sugar on the bottom (heaven....)
is on the top.
definitely blog worthy.
it would be a very good easter treat.
with a big cup of coffee...
i am drooling.
