Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices of bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups raspberries, cleaned and picked over
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Preparation:

Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

In the prepared baking dish, arrange the bread in layers, cutting in half as necessary for coverage.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, and milk. Pour over the bread. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 375°.

Remove the cover from the baking dish and sprinkle raspberries evenly over the soaked bread.

Combine the butter, flour, and brown sugar; blend with a fork until well combined. Sprinkle evenly over the berry layer.

Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 50 minutes, or until puffed and browned. Cut into squares to serve. Pass the syrup!

Serves 8.
