This is SO good. It is comfort food at it’s best. A meal and a dessert all in one. One of my kids, who doesn’t like French toast said, “I’m someone who does like French toast, but this, this is delicious and you should make this again.” We had it for dinner instead of breakfast with the homemade cherry syrup.

Honestly, it doesn’t need syrup. The brown sugar and butter gets nice and syrupy and kind of caramelized on the bottom of the baking dish. Some of it bakes into the bread and when you serve it, you flip it upside down on to the plate and spoon what’s left in the pan right on top. It is amazing.

You can use really whatever bread you have on hand but I love egg bread are the best for this: challah, brioche. It makes it seem kind of fancy. And it is so easy to make and forgiving. It calls for 8 eggs but I’ve gotten by with six. You can make it ahead or you can make it right now. It only takes a few minutes to put it all together.
