    List of Ingredients

    8 slices stale cinnamon-raisin bread*
    2 ounces cream cheese, softened
    4 large eggs
    1 1/4 cups milk
    3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    Powdered sugar, as topping
    Maple or Cane Syrup, as desired


    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

    Lay the bread on a flat work surface. Spread 4 slices with a heaping tablespoon of cream cheese, and top each with the remaining slices of bread.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Place the bread flat in a casserole dish and cover with the egg mixture. Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes.

    *(NOTE: If using fresh bread, do not soak longer than 5 minutes, as the bread will get too soggy.)

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the pan. Add as many slices of soaked bread to the pan as will fit in 1 layer, and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan, place on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan and cook the remaining bread.

    Sprinkle the French toast with powdered sugar and serve immediately with syrup.
