How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Stir in the pecans and raisins. Add the bread and soak, turning occasionally, until it has absorbed most of the custard, 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 3

Arrange the bread in an overlapping pattern in a buttered 3-quart baking dish. Pour over any remaining liquid, nuts, and raisins from the bowl. Sprinkle with the raw sugar.

Step 4

Bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm, with additional maple syrup.

Chef's Notes

Tip: To make ahead, soak the bread and custard in a bowl overnight. In the morning, layer in a casserole and bake as instructed.
