Puffed clouds of ecstasy.
2 to 3 servings
Combine the eggs, half-and-half, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Pour half the mixture into a baking dish. Place the bread in the pan and top with other half of egg mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight. Melt the butter in a 9x13-inch baking dish and stir in the brown sugar, honey, maple syrup and pecans. Add the soaked bread slices. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes until puffed and brown. Serve immediately.
For that extra something on your toast, make a batch of honey butter. It keeps up to 4 weeks and is simple to make. Just combine 1 stick butter, 2/3 cup honey, and 1/3 cup light brown sugar with an electric mixer or food processor. Store in a crock and chill until firm.
