I'm always looking for make ahead-especially for mornings,and this was quick to do and delicious. We didn't have maple syrup on hand so I doubled the sauce. We all love caramelly type sauces and this was more of a vanilla caramel sauce;which was more to our liking then just vanilla. It was the perfect custard and I highly recommend using french bread and cutting it like the recipe recommends.I've use Texas toast bread before but never again.
Quick and easy to prepare. The recipe states bake 35 minutes but it takes close to an hour or it will be soggy in the middle. The leftovers are just as good the second day.
