How to make it

  • Butter a 13-by-9-inch glass baking dish. Cut twelve 1-inch-thick diagonal slices from bread (reserve ends for another use).
  • Generously butter one side of each slice and arrange slices buttered sides up in one layer in buttered dish, squeezing them slightly to fit if necessary.
  • Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt in a bowl until well combined, then pour evenly over bread. Refrigerate, covered, until bread has absorbed all of custard, at least 1 hour (time may vary depending on bread).
  • Bring soaked bread to room temperature. Put a rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 425° F. Sprinkle bread with sugar. Bake until bread is puffed and top is golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately, with maple syrup.
  • Cook's Note: The soaked bread can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours before baking.

    I love your instructions, "Hint, whisper, splash." That's lovely and I can't wait to try this recipe on a special morning. Thank you.

    This sounds like the perfect answer for overnight guests on the weekends. I am definitely not a morning person, so I won't have to think too much while I'm having my coffee. Thanks a bunch!

    Yum! I am going to try this! I once tried the overnight french toast recipe I found and it was nasty! My husband told me I didn't have to make that very often! :) I'll try yours. Thanks!
