This is a great breakfast treat served with syrup and sprinkled with powdered sugar.......yum-yum. It can be served as the breakfast meal or cut into smaller portions as a side dish with some other breakfast dishes.

Ingredients

INGREDIENTS:

1
loaf sourdough bread
8 large
eggs
2 c
milk
1/2 c
heavy cream
3/4 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
vanilla

TOPPING:

1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
salt
1 stick
cold butter, cut into pieces

OPTIONAL ADDITIONS:

dried apple slices
dried banana chips
raisins, dark or golden
dried cherries or cranberries

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease a 9x13 pan with butter. Tear bread into bite-size chunks and place evenly in the pan.
2
Mix together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread. Cover tightly and store in the fridge for several hours (about 8 to 12 hours).
**If adding optional dried fruit, combine fruit with bread pieces before you pour the egg mixture.
3
In a medium bowl mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until it all looks nice and crumbly (like small pebbles). Place in a ziploc bag and put in fridge.
4
When ready to bake, take pan and bag out of fridge. Remove wrap and evenly sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for @45 minutes if you like it more pudding-like (for scooping) or up to 1 hour if you like it more firm (for cutting).
