  • 1 large loaf of crusty bread (I like using sourdough)
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs pure vanilla 

TOPPING

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 stick cold butter, cut into small pieces
  1. Rough chop loaf of bread into cubes and place evenly into a greased 9x13 baking dish. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs + milk + cream + sugar and vanilla. 
  3. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread.
  4. Cover your dish with saran wrap and refridgerate over night. 
  5. In a small bowl mix together flour + brown sugar + salt and cinnamon. 
  6. Cut butter into sugar and flour mix until crumbly. You can do this morning of, but I do night before and place in ziploc bag until morning. 
  7. Take baking dish + sugar mix out of the refridgerater in morning. Sprinkle topping evenly over bread. 
  8. Bake uncovered at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
