Overnight Caramel French Toast

This is one of my family's favorite recipes. We make it every few months not only because it's easy but delicious as well. You have to try this one - no need for syrup as the caramel glaze is perfect on the top (once you invert the pieces after baking). Enjoy!


INGREDIENTS

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
12 slices bread
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

1.In a small saucepan, bring the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Top with six slices of bread. Combine sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle half over the bread. Place remaining bread on top. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar; set aside.

2.In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

3.Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes.
