Non-stick cooking spray or melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
milk (see comments below)
1 medium apple — pared and shredded
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 loaf French bread cut into 12 1-inch slices
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup milk
Coat the bottom of a 13×9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray or melted butter.
Combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, apple and vanilla. Place bread in a single layer in dish. Pour egg mixture over bread, turning to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 425. Sprinkle pecans over bread slices and drizzle with melted butter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until puffy.
Because this recipe is made the night before, it’s good for lazy weekend mornings or when hosting overnight guests.
