This recipe was created from my indecision. I was craving a cinnamon roll or cinnamon raisin bread, but I also wanted eggs. French toast came to mind; then a breakfast casserole. So... I combined them, ALL! Viola! A delicious, breakfast or brunch dish with cinnamon, raisins, eggs, brown sugar, butter and (the piece de résistance) real maple syrup.
