Directions See How It's Made
- Combine the melted butter and brown sugar in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
- Arrange the bread slices in the dish. (It’s fine if they overlap.).
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Pour the mixture over the bread, and let it soak inches.
- Top the bread slices evenly with the pecans.
- Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 3 to 12 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In the meantime, take the casserole out of the refrigerator, and let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
- Bake the casserole until it’s browned and set, 30 to 45 minutes. Let it cool slightly on a wire rack. Sift confectioners’ sugar over the casserole, and serve it with sorghum, cane, or maple sugar.
