Culinary Conversation: Cook with a kid and make a memory



  • 1 (12 1/2-ounce) loaf of a favorite bread (such as challah), cut into 1-inch-thick slices
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 7 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Generously butter a 13-by-9-inch casserole. Arrange bread slices in dish, staggering in rows.

In large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over bread and press down, making sure slices absorb the liquid.

Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat oven to 350. Remove foil and bake for 55 minutes to an hour, until puffy and golden.

Serve with more maple syrup, if desired.

Serves six.

Nah, it's probably not that interesting.
I don't know. I'm afraid of what I might find out.
