This is the perfect recipe to make for the holidays- Christmas, Boxing Day or even New Year’s Day!
It’s perfect for a crowd and super easy for hosting as you make it the night before and then just bake the morning of your gathering.
What you need:
2 to 2 1/4 cups milk (if you use more bread, add the extra 1/4 milk)
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
12 – 18 slices Challah bread*, crusts removed (2 loaves usually)
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar
What you do:
Lightly butter 9 X 13 pan.
Combine eggs, milk and cinnamon.
Dip bread in egg mixture, coating both sides, and layer in pan. Pour the rest of the egg mixture on top.
Stir together butter and brown sugar and drizzle over top.
Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, bring to room temperature, preheat oven to 400 F and remove foil. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden and custard has set.
*Another name for Challah bread is egg bread.
