Every year my husband and I throw a big New Year's Day brunch. We wear our favorite pajamas and serve some Hair-of-the-Dog and lots to eat, including this crowd-pleaser. And the best part is it's assembled the night before and cooked just before the guest arrive.

How to Make Crème Brûlée French Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small heavy saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring, until smooth and pour into a 13- by 9- by 2-inch baking dish.

  3. Preheat oven to 350° F. and bring bread to room temperature.
  4. Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 35 to 40 minutes.
  5. Serve hot French toast immediately.
