    Very good, although a little too sweet for our taste. Used heavy cream instead of milk (had some i needed to use up) and a loaf of French bread from our local grocer, omitted the maple syrup, reduced the butter to 1/8 cup (due to fat content in heavy cream). Very good! Made as steps directed. The brown sugar could be reduced to 1/2 and still be very sweet. We did not use any syrup on this, it does not need any. Glad we tried it & will make again for special occasion. Definitely something to save for eating seldomly because of the richness! (* i noticed this recipe was identical to one from here:

    Delicious! I made it with a loaf of French brioche and used a 9 x 13 dish. Came out perfect!

    I should have used a shallower, longer pan, but it was delicious!

    Lovely Christmas morning brunch. Served with warm Butter-Pecan Maple Syrup and sausage. Everyone loved it! Followed the recipe as stated, but used a loaf of French bread from the bakery and used a 9x13" baking dish. Delicious!

    Wonderful. Used French brioche and it was perfect. I made this for girls weekend and they all loved it. I'll make this again. We felt there was no need for syrup.

    Turned out great! I made 3 dishes for brunch at my school. Everyone loved it. All 3 dishes were finished polished off very quickly. 🙂
