  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste


Step 1

To start, slice your loaf bread into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, crack six eggs, then gradually add 2 cups of milk and 2 tsp vanilla extract while whisking. Next, add 1/2 cup of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar to a saucepan over medium-low heat, and mix until the butter melts and the sugar is kind of dissolved. Spread this mixture along the bottom of your casserole dish.
