Sticky Baked French Toast

This is the best baked french toast I have ever had! The sticky caramel really makes this dish divine!

1 day old loaf of french bread
5 T unsalted butter
1 C brown sugar
2 T corn syrup or Maple Syrup
1/2 C milk
5 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
whipped cream and strawberries(optional)

Cut the french bread into 1-2" wide slices.
In a medium sized saucepan over a medium flame, put corn/maple syrup, butter and brown sugar. Stir until it all comes together and starts to bubble. Carefully pour the hot, sticky mixture into a well-buttered and possibly aluminum-foiled 13"x9" baking dish.

Arrange the thick slices of french bread over the mixture.In a big bowl, beat together eggs, milk and vanilla until light colored and a little bubbly. Pour the eggy mixture over the bread which is on top of the hot, sticky mixture.

Cover the baking dish and refrigerate overnight.

Heat the oven to 350°

Put the french toast dish in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Loosen the sticky baked french bread from its hot, sticky bed and invert onto a platter or really big plate. Serve with whipped cream and strawberries!
