  • 1 loaf day old French bread whole wheat, brioche, challah, or ciabatta, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar or pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place the bread cubes in an even layer in the dish.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread in the dish.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, maple syrup or brown sugar and cinnamon. Drizzle over the casserole.
  • At this point, you can refrigerate the casserole overnight (covered) and bake in the morning, or let it rest for 20-30 minutes (in the refrigerator) and then bake right away.
  • When you are ready to bake the casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10-20 minutes more, until the top is lightly browned and the casserole is set. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup, as desired.
