    Title: Baked Cinnamon French Toast
    Categories: Breads, Chocolate, Dairy, Fruits
    Yield: 8 Servings

    1/4 c Butter
    1/4 c Packed brown sugar
    1 lb Loaf sliced cinnamon-swirl
    - bread
    1/2 c Raisins and/or chocolate
    - chips
    3 lg Eggs
    1 1/4 c Half & half
    1 1/4 c Milk
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    Whipped cream (opt)

    THE NIGHT BEFORE: In microwave, melt butter with brown
    sugar. Use to coat bottom of 13" X 9" pan. Place 1 layer
    of bread in pan, packing in tightly. Scatter raisins or
    chocolate chips evenly over bread. (Or sprinkle 1/4 cup
    raisins on one side, 1/4 cup chocolate chips on the other,
    to accommodate different tastes.) Top with second layer of
    bread. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour
    evenly over bread. Cover with foil and refrigerate

    IN THE MORNING: Preheat oven to 350øF/175øC.

    Bake, covered, in preheated oven 45 minutes; uncover and
    bake another 15 minutes. Dish will puff up and then fall.
    Cut into squares, invert onto serving plates and serve, if
    desired, with whipped cream.

    Makes: 8 servings

    NOTES: I used chocolate chips instead of raisins in this
    recipe. I'd recommend that you try that too. Having a
    layer of melted chocolate turns a regular baked French
    toast into something unique and fun. Make sure you use a
    bread with lots of cinnamon flavor. As with every French
    toast recipe, day old (slightly dry) bread works best. The
    only change I'd suggest is that you start by thoroughly
    greasing your baking pan with additional butter. I loved
    everything about this breakfast except that it stuck to
    the sides of the baking dish and was hard to clean. I
    found that leftovers heated up the next day were also
    very, very good.
