Creme Brulee French Toast
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 C. packed brown sugar
2 T. maple syrup
1/2 t. rum extract
1 country-style bread (an 8- to 9-inch round)
1 3/4 C. half-and-half
1 t. vanilla extract
2 teaspoons Grand Marnier
1/4 t. salt
Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter with the sugar, maple syrup,
and rum extract. Pour the mixture into the dish.
Cut six 1 1/2-inch thick slices from the center of the bread. Arrange the bread
slices in one layer in the baking dish, squeezing them slightly so they fit.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, Grand Marnier, and salt.
Pour the mixture evenly over the bread. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at
least 8 hours and for up to one day.
Let the dish sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Set the oven at 350° F.
Uncover the dish and bake the French toast for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed
and golden. Serve at once.
