I made this for breakfast this morning and it was so simple and delicious. I did substitute maple syrup for the sugar. Also, the slices did not seem thoroughly cooked after the recommended time so I lowered the oven to 375 and left them in for an additional 5 minutes. They came out perfectly cooked and just a little crunchy on the bottom. I will definitely be adding this to our regular menu!
