- ¾ cup milk
- 8 (one-inch) slices French or Italian bread
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large flat dish, combine the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Let the bread soak in a single layer in the mixture for about two minutes. Turn it and let it soak until all the custard is absorbed.
In a large flat baking dish (9" x 13"), melt the butter. Add the bread in a single layer.
