5 eggs

1 c. milk

1/2 c. heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 tsp. cinnamon

Pinch kosher salt

1 stick melted butter

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. maple syrup

1 loaf challah bread, sliced 1” thick

Confectioners’ sugar, for serving (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar and maple syrup. Pour mixture into a large tall baking dish and spread into an even layer using a spatula. Arrange bread on top in a single layer.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour mixture over bread. If you have time, cover and let soak in refrigerate for 1 hour or up to overnight. Otherwise, bake for about 25 minutes, or until the the butter-sugar mixture is bubbling in the bottom of the pan.

Serve immediately, sugar side up. Sift powdered sugar on top if desired.
