This divine dessert is a great way to use up leftover French bread.
Updated May 6, 2005

Ingredients

  • 8 slices French bread, each 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups milk, scalded and cooled
  • Powdered sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Butter 1 1/2-quart casserole. Spread one side of each slice bread with butter. Layer bread slices, buttered sides up, in casserole; sprinkle with cinnamon. Beat eggs slightly in medium bowl; mix in granulated sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir in milk; pour over bread.
  • 2
    Place casserole in pan of very hot water (1 inch deep). Cover casserole loosely with aluminum foil. Bake 20 minutes; remove foil. Continue baking 35 to 40 minutes longer or until knife inserted 1 inch from edge of casserole comes out clean. (Cover with foil if top gets too brown.)
  • 3
    Remove casserole from hot water. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm. Store covered in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Scalding milk is simply the process of heating it to just under a boil.
  • tip 2
    Adding 1/2 cup of raisins or chocolate chips to the egg mixture puts a slightly different twist on this comfort food dessert.
