Total Time4 hrs 10 mins
- 1 loaf French bread
- 1 1/2 c. frozen mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries)
- 2 1/4 c. whole milk, or a mix of 2% and half and half
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
- maple syrup for serving
Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Slice French bread into 1-inch chunks and spread half of them in the pan. Sprinkle half the berries on top. Repeat with the remaining half of bread chunks and berries.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and brown sugar until smooth. Pour over bread, pressing down the top with a spatula to help bread soak up the milk mixture.
Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours (overnight is preferable). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.
