1 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 large eggs
1 cup half-and-half
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 1″ slices cinnamon bread
Raspberries and Blue berries


1. Combine maple syrup (leave 3 tbsp. for later use), 1 tablespoon butter, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a heavy medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 2 minutes.

2. Combine eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, 3 tablespoons maple syrup mixture, and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl and whisk. Place cinnamon bread slices in a large baking dish. Pour egg mixture over the slices and turn to coat the slices with the syrup mixture evenly. Pierce the bread slices in several places with a fork. Let stand for 5 minutes.
