1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
8 slices day-old raisin bread
4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided (I used dark brown sugar)
1-1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
Additional maple syrup
In a small bowl, combine butter and cinnamon; spread over one side of each slice of bread. Place four slices, buttered side up, in a greased 8-in. square baking dish (trim to fit if necessary). Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Repeat with remaining bread and brown sugar.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until golden and puffed. Serve with additional syrup.
Yield: 4 servings.
