This is what Becky said about this recipe:

"I tried this recipe for my son's confirmation and there wasn't one person that didn't like it. I had a breakfast brunch and made it before everyone came the day before and just stuck it in the oven in the morning. It was wonderful!!! I think I might even use a small can of peaches and divide the recipe in half for just us".


1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 (29 ounce) can peaches or fresh peaches, sliced
1 loaf French bread (12 to 14 slices)
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla

  • In a saucepan, heat butter and sugar on medium-low heat; add water and continue until sauce comes to a full boil.
  • Cook 10 minutes, then pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and cool 10 minutes.
  • Place drained peaches on top of cooled sauce and cover with slices of bread placed close together.
  • Blend together eggs, milk and vanilla and pour over bread.
  • Cover pan, and refrigerate overnight.
  • To bake, place in a 350º oven for 40 minutes.
  • Loosely cover with foil the last 10 to 15 minutes if mixture is browning too quickly.
  • Serve with bread on the bottom and peaches on top.
  • Serve a little extra syrup on the side if desired.

Serves 12 to 14
