• 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained
  • 12 (3/4 inch thick) slices day-old French bread
  • 5eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    In a saucepan, stir together the brown sugar, butter and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.


  • Step 2

    Pour the brown sugar mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish, and tilt the dish to cover the entire bottom. Place peaches in a layer over the sugar coating, then top with slices of French bread. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Slowly pour over the bread slices to coat evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

  • Step 3

    Remove the dish from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Step 4

    Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bread is golden brown. Spoon out portions to serve.
