Baked French Toast with Praline Topping
Makes 20 slices

1 loaf French bread or brioche or bread of choice
8 eggs
2 cups half-and-half
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of salt

Splash of favourite liqueur, optional

Praline topping:
500g butter (2 sticks), melted
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 175C. Slice bread into 20 slices, each 1 inch thick. Arrange slices in generously buttered baking dish in two rows, overlapping the slices.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, and liqueur, if using. Beat until blended but not too bubbly. Pour mixture over bread slices, making sure all are covered.

Spoon some of the mixture between the slices. Let egg mixture seep in.

Make the praline topping by combining all ingredients; spread evenly over the bread and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and fully cooked in the centre. Serve with maple syrup or whipped cream.
