9-inchloafFrench Bread, Brioche, Challah, Country(sliced or cut into cubes)
Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup and cook until silky smooth, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Slice the bread or cut it into cubes. Arrange the bread slices in the baking dish.
In a bowl, whisk the half-n-half, the eggs, and the vanilla until combined. Pour over the bread. Cover the baking dish in foil and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Once it has chilled for at least 8 hours, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-36 minutes, uncovered, until a light golden color (if it begins to become too golden brown, cover with foil). Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
