Overnight French Toast
- 1/2 cup - butter or margarine
- 1 cup - firmly packed Domino® Light or Dark Brown Sugar
- 2 tablespoons - maple syrup
- 1 loaf - (9 ounces) French bread, cut into 3/4-inch thick slices (about 14 slices)
- 1 1/4 cups - milk
- 4 - large eggs
- 1 teaspoon - vanilla

In small saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar and maple syrup. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour into bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on top of brown sugar mixture.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend well. Pour egg mixture over bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight until most of the liquid is absorbed.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400° F. Uncover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and dust with sifted confectioners' sugar. Place baking dish under the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve immediately.

This French toast can stand alone-butter and syrup are not needed. Also good as a dessert served hot and topped with ice cream or flavored whipped cream and fresh fruit or chocolate curls.
