About the Recipe

Imagine a cozy morning with a dish that not only satisfies your nostalgia for home-made delights but also caters to your contemporary craving for something sweet, savory, and utterly irresistible.


  • French or Texas toast bread, cubed

  • ½ cup of unsalted butter

  • 1 cup of packed dark brown sugar

  • 6 large eggs

  • 2 cups of whole milk or heavy cream

  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon, 2 teaspoons split

  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar for topping

  • Optional: powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Warm your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish.

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, stirring until smooth. Spread this mixture in your prepared dish.

  3. Scatter bread cubes over the buttery brown sugar in the dish.

  4. Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, and a teaspoon of cinnamon together, then pour this over the bread ensuring each piece is well-coated. Add a sprinkle of the remaining cinnamon and a tablespoon of brown sugar.

  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Look for a golden crust. Dust with powdered sugar to your liking once baked.
