  • 1 loaf French baguette sliced diagonally into 1-inch thick rounds
  • 1 stick butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 T. light corn syrup
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk whole milk is best, but 2% is okay as well. Just don’t use skim because you need the fat for the custard
  • ½ cup Dunkin Donuts Extra Extra coffee creamer
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg


  • maple syrup and powdered sugar for serving


  • Melt butter, sugar, and syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute (be careful not to burn).
  • Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Pour melted butter mixture into the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with half of the cranberries. Place the slices of bread on top.
  • In a medium bowl (or in a very large measuring cup) whisk together eggs, milk, creamer, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour over the bread, sprinkle with remaining cranberries, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.*
  • In the morning, remove plastic wrap and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with syrup.


*If you don't have time to refrigerate overnight, that's fine. Just soak the bread in the custard for as long as possible (or at least 1-2 hours) before baking.
