This will help you stay away from fried foods (if that is your choice) and still be beyond yummy in flavour.
- 4 slices of thick bread (Texas cut)
- 6 extra large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 tbsp.light corn syrup
Butter a 9″ baking dish. Overlap slices to completely fill the dish surface. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, whipping cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, mixing well to blend.
Pour over the bread making sure all are covered, then cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight.
Next morning, set the table, perhaps add some fresh flowers and , while doing this,take the dish from the fridge, remove the wrap and let sit a good 45 minutes before baking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Now, mix together the last 3 ingredients really well and spread over the bread. Bake 45-60 minutes until puffed and golden.
Serve with warm syrup of your choice. For garnish add a couple of fresh berries or slices of melon.
Voila! Another success in the morning
