I can't say enough good things about this recipe. I make it every weekend - it's a HUGE hit in our house! I've used the rasien bread, regular bread and homemade bread - it's all amazing.
oh gracious this is good! i didn't have the cinnamon swirl toast, so i just used thick sliced "Texas Toast". i used a little more pecans than called for (i really love pecans). also, i only used 2/3 cup sugar in the egg mixture and found that it was plenty sweet. i put a little of the pecan mixture on top before baking and loved the extra pecans. and i didn't even need to use powdered sugar on the finished product because it was so rich and sweet already. i can't imagine eating more than one serving, it is RIIICH! thanks so much for sharing!
"5 Star" rating right around the table! FANTASTIC fun and fabulously flavorful. (: Plus..pretty as a picture! We LOVED this, V. (: Thanks so much for posting.
I reduced this recipe for 2 slices of brioche bread. Batter: 2 eggs, one half cup milk, 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon Tennessee Honey Whiskey. Topping: 1 tablespoon butter, one ripe banana in medium slices, one half cup chopped pecans, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup. Yum.
I am usually really bad at burning/under cooking everything. This recipe was so easy and tasty! It is quick with few ingredients. I didn't alter it at all and it came out great. Thanks!
I made this for brunch on Martin Luther King Jr.'s holiday (one of his favorite foods was pecan pie), and it was fabulous! I used homemade white bread and cut the sugar by 1/3, as recommended by an earlier review. Thank you so much.
Congrats! Your Recipe was featured as our "Recipe of the Day" on our homepage! (7/12/11)
Just made these this morning. So easy to make and it tasted GREAT! Next time I think I will spread some cream cheese on it first before putting the pecan mix on. Excellent with some fresh fruit on the side.
Yum! This one is definitely going into our Sunday morning breakfast rotation.
