I prepared this a little differently than written. I had made a huge loaf of wonderful challah bread that I wanted to get rid of so I took the remaining loaf and made huge slits in it, stuffed the slits with the butter and brown sugar, poured the cream (used milk) and eggs (used egg substitute) and vanilla mixture over the top, then sprinkled cinnamon over the top. Chilled overnight then popped it in the oven in the morning. This was so incredibly delicious. I completely forgot to put syrup on mine but hubby said it was wonderful with syrup too. Going to make challah loaves just for this recipe! Thanks!!!
NOW, this is an excellent recipe! I made this as directed and I just LOVE breakfast recipes that are made the night before and can be stuck in the oven in the morning, I'm such a bad morning person. Made as directed and it turned out beautifully. We didn't bother flipping the loaf onto a plate, we just cut slices out of the pan and served with a spatula. This is really rich and delicious. After breakfast my husband said he felt like going on a Dumbo ride. Thanks for posting this dustcatcher!
