This makes a scrumptious breakfast or brunch, perfect of the holidays or for guests.  It’s not difficult and chances are, you can make it from the ingredients you have on hand.  The dish can be assembled and stored in the refrigerator for up to three days in advance and then just pop it in the oven on your busy morning.


1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
8 slices white bread
5 large eggs
1 cup cream
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
1 teaspoon butter rum flavor (or use a second teaspoon of vanilla)
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  1. On the stovetop, melt the butter.  Add the corn syrup and brown sugar and continue heating until the sugar has melted and the mixture is smooth.  Spread the hot syrup in a 9 x13-inch pan.
  2. Arrange the bread slices in a layer in the baking pan, squeezing the bread to make it fit.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, flavors, and salt together.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the bread.  Place the completed dish in the refrigerator overnight or up to three days.
  5. Bake for 40 to 445 minutes or until the eggs are set and the toast is a pale golden color.  Invert slices onto plates and serve hot.
