Candy Green's Crème Brulee French Toast
Serves 4 - 6
- 4-6 slices thick slices (1 ½" thick) challah or babka
- or Portuguese sweet bread staled over night
- 1 t. softened butter
- 1 stick (¼ lb) melted butter
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 cups cream
- 1 t. vanilla
Grease a shallow baking dish with the softened butter. Place the stale bread in the dish without overlapping it. Pour the melted butter evenly over the bread.
Beat the eggs and sugar. Add the cream and vanilla. Pour over the bread. Soak at room temperature for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Turn the slices occasionally. Be careful! The bread is fragile at this point, so once the bread is thoroughly saturated, leave it alone.
If the bread mixture had remained in the refrigerator overnight, bring it to room temperature before baking.
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
