Directions

  1. Cube or tear bread into 1-2 in chunks. I like to use great harvest bread Apple cinch bread but any French, Italian, etc works. Put them in a sprayed or greased 13x9 in baking dish.
  2. mash 2 very ripe bananas with 1/4 c brown sugar.
  3. Whisk in 6 eggs.
  4. add 3 cups of milk, hazelnut and vanilla extract (double vanilla if you don't have hazelnut) and whisk until combined.
  5. Pour over the bread and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  6. mix the remaining 1/2 c brown sugar with the cinnamon and walnuts and sprinkle evenly over the top of the bread in the morning.
  7. Slice the 1/2 stick of butter very thin and dot the top of the casserole with them.
  8. bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
  9. Serve alone or with maple syrup. This reheats very well!
