    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

    Instructions

    Prepare the Bread:

    • Arrange the bread slices in a single layer in a greased 9×13-inch baking dish, slightly overlapping if necessary.

    Make the Custard Mixture:

      • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon (if using), and a pinch of salt.

    • Pour this mixture evenly over the bread slices, ensuring all are well-coated. Allow the bread to soak for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate overnight for the best results.

    Prepare the Caramelized Topping:

      • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
      • Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup, and continue to cook until the mixture is smooth and bubbly.

    • Pour this mixture over the soaked bread slices, spreading it evenly across the top.

    Bake the French Toast:

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Bake the French toast for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is bubbly and caramelized and the custard is set
    • Serve:

      • Let the French toast cool slightly before serving.
      • Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve with additional syrup, fresh berries, or whipped cream.
