Creme Brulee French Toast



  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs corn syrup
  • 6 (1” thick) slices French bread
  • 5 eggs
  • 1½ cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp brandy-based orange liqueur
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in brown sugar and corn syrup, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Remove crusts from bread, and arrange in the baking dish in a single layer. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla extract, orange brandy, and salt. Pour over the bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature.
  4. Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and lightly browned.
