Really enjoyed your recipe, was just like having a piece of cinnamon sugar toast.

Super easy to make! I followed others' suggestions and used less liquid , left it overnight in a plastic bag and removed the foil for about ten minutes to crisp the top. A big hit with the family!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2014

Took this to a pot luck brunch and it was very well received. Super easy to prepare and love that it's prepped the night before. I agree, maybe a bit less liquid - perhaps 1/4-1/2 cup less milk. Otherwise,i would have given it 5 stars. I used a blueberry French bread and it was awesome. Because of the blueberry, I opted to use less cinnamon and added nutmeg to compliment the berry flavor. I also added some powdered sugar after it was baked to make it look a little prettier. Some who ate it chose to add a little blueberry syrup , others maple and some thought it was great without syrup. Everyone liked it and so did I!
