Except for cutting the amount of sugar back to 3/4 cup, I did follow the recipe & we had a wonderfully tasty dish (one of several) when my son & DIL were here for breakfast last week! And, as much as we liked it as given, I'd like to try it another time with some nutty, whole grain bread that I often use in bread puddings! Either way, the recipe will be kept around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
Good! I used 5 eggs, 7 slices of bread to fill a round Corningware baking dish. Still good! To use demerara sugar and avoid graininess, melt butter and blend sugar into it for 5-7 minutes with and electric mixture.
