8 slices Bread, cut diagonally
12 Eggs
2 C Milk
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Ground Cardamom (optional)
1 tsp Lemon Zest
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla


Grease 13x9 inch (30x23cm) baking dish.

Arrange bread slices in baking dish so they overlap.

In large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk spices,
lemon zest, sugar and vanilla.

Pour egg mixture over bread.

Cover the baking dish and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden
and fluffy.

Enjoy with hot syrup, jam or butter and confectioners' sugar.

Variations and Tips:

You can mix up the recipe the night before and let the bread soak in a covered baking dish over night. In the morning, uncover and bake. What could be easier.

You can also add about 1 cup of fresh fruit just before
baking. Enjoy making your own variation of this recipe.
Great idea for Easter brunch.

If you like you can use egg substitute to equal 12 eggs.
