Servings 4 Servings


  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or pancake syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 0.25 teaspoon Salt
  • 8 slices 1/2 inch slices of French bread or banana bread or cinnamon raisin bread day old
  • 4 tablespoons Butter


  1. In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Place the mixture in a flat 9"x13" pan.
  2. Place slices in the pan, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a sheet pan, while finishing the final slices. If there is any extra custard, drizzle over the slices and allow it to soak into the bread.

  4. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices.
  5. Serve immediately with maple syrup and fruit.
