Author: Melanie - Gather for Bread


  • 1 loaf DAY OLD French or other crusty bread 14-16 ounces
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half creamer or additional 1/2 cup milk
  • ½ cup sugar See Notes
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For topping

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter


  • Cut bread into cubes or tear into small pieces and set aside. Grease a muffin pan. Grease it really well. (Makes about 15 so if you have another muffin pan grease a few muffin cup holes.) In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half and half, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Place a full handful of bread cubes in each muffin cup hole. Press down slightly with the spoon.
  • Pour liquid mixture over bread cubes in pan. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl combine brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut butter into small pieces and place over flour mixture. With a fork blend butter into mixture until it resembles small crumbs; sprinkle over bread cubes in pan. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. To check, shake the cups. If it wiggles a lot it's not done. Continue to bake until it cooked through completely. Or test with a cake tester or toothpick to see if it comes out clean.
  • Serve immediately or cool completely before freezing.
