Notes

Notes: You don’t need to wait overnight if in a time crunch, just wait around 45 minutes or until the bread has soaked up most of the custard. Other bread that will work is Challah and Brioche. Up to 1/3 cup of mix ins such as seeds, nuts or berries may be added before baking for additional flavors. The best bread is day old but fresh will work as well. Keep in fridge up to 3 days. Reheat by oven at 350F for 5-7 minutes or microwave.
