Creme Brulee French Toast at Candleberry Inn in Cape Cod, MA
Creme Brulee French Toast for 6
Here’s a Christmas morning favorite – our most asked for recipe, decadent, but easy to prepare the night before!

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespons corn syrup
1 loaf italian or country style bread
6 large eggs

1-1/2 cups half & half or light cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier liquor
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small, heavy saucepan melt the stick of butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth, then pour evenly into a 13×9×2” baking dish.

Cut 6 thick slices of bread, trimming the crusts and discarding the ends. Arrange the slices on top of the butter, sugar, corn syrup mixture – squeeze them in slightly to fit if necessary.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla, Grand Marnier and salt until well combined. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread slices. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours).

When ready to bake, heat oven to 350 degrees. Take baking pan out of refrigerator and let it come up to room temperature. Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in the middle of the oven until puffed and the edges are golden – about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Very rich – no other syrup or topping needed! Tasty served with a bunch of fresh grapes on the side and a slice or two of bacon.
