8 slices day-old raisin bread
4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
6 Eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups 2% milk
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Additional maple syrup
In a small bowl, combine butter and cinnamon; spread over one side of
each slice of bread. Place four slices, buttered side up, in a
greased 8-in. square baking dish (trim to fit if necessary).
