This is so good...
I found this recipe years ago from a wedding planner book I bought because it had a fabulious recipe section in it.
Caramel Soaked French Toast
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
3/4 of a cube of butter
1/8 cup + 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
6 slices of bread (I prefer Texas Toast brand )or 8 slices of french bread
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
Combine brown sugar, butter & corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat. Stir & boil a few minutes. Pour syrup mixture evenly into a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking dish.
Arrange bread slices over syrup. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla & salt; stir well. Gradually pour mixture over bread slices. Cover & chill at least 8 hours.
Combine: Sugar & cinnamon. Stir well; sprinkle evenly over soaked bread. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes until golden & bubbly. Serve.
