  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar or honey

  • Lightly mist a 9" x 13" x 2" casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bread slices in two rows, slightly overlapping pieces. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sucanat. Pour mixture over bread, making sure all bread is moist. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  1. How long should it soak for? Not sure if I could prepare in evening or if I should wait right before bed? Is 14 hrs too long?

    1. Annie, You can prepare first thing in the morning and allow to soak for about 30 minutes before baking. That will work too!

  2. i want to make a change and loose weight. I found this page and thank you for all of the great informations looking forward to it

    1. Since there is still a topping to sprinkle over the casserole, you will need to remove the cover.
