Step 1

1. Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, half and half, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

2. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Let pan sit out while oven is preheating, and turn each bread piece over to soak up liquid.

3. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and maple syrup; heat until bubbling.

4. Bake covered with foil for 20 minutes. Pour hot sauce over bread, and continue to bake uncovered for the remaining 20 minutes.

*Sprinkle with toasted pecans before baking.
