Recipe Notes

  • You could use corn syrup if you don't have honey.
  • Instead of pecans try almonds, cashews or walnuts.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a bowl. 
  2. Put the bread slices in a single layer in a pan. Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. While the bread soaks, combine the brown sugar, butter and honey in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until it has thickened, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Pour the brown sugar mixture into a 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle on the pecans. Top with the bread slices. 
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate.
