"Our family and friends love this recipe! I used Pancake syrup rather than pure maple syrup, and it turns out fine. I have also split the recipe, and baked it in an 8" square pan with excellent results. It is a favorite for brunch potlucks, and I'm always asked to bring it!"
"Way, way, way too sweet!! OMG - it issickening sweet. I used cinnamon bread, should have at least skipped the additional sugar. Never again.... Wow...."
"I made this for Christmas morning brunch with our grown kids and their significant others. It was a huge hit and requested to have it again next year."
"The (room temperature) regular cream cheese didn't melt at all - NOT low fat. Expected more of a maple syrup flavor. Just could not use 2 Tbs of vanilla. Seemed too much."
"I halved the recipe & baked it in an 8-inch square pan. I left out the nutmeg. It was delicious! Love that I can prepare it the night before. This was my first time making an overnight French toast bake - have been wanting to try one for a long time & finally felt brave enough to do it with this recipe."
