– Bread (cut into triangles) – Eggs – Half and half – Maple syrup – Vanilla extract – Salt - Dark brown sugar – Raw sugar – Chopped pecans – Cinnamon
Grease a baking dish with melted butter or baking spray. Cut the bread into triangles, & arrange in a single layer across the bottom, then fan the rest out.
In a measuring jug, whisk together the eggs, half & half, maple syrup and salt & pour the mixture over the bread slices.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 mins or overnight.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans & salt. Sprinkle topping over the bread.
Bake for 30-40 mins, or until the top is golden brown and set. Allow to cool slightly then cut into slices, & serve!
Use vanilla-infused maple syrup, if you can find one. If not, add 1 tsp vanilla extract to the egg mixture.
If you can find one, a cinnamon-infused maple syrup really dials up the cinnamon flavor.
