I've been making this recipe once a week for about a year now. The only difference is my recipe calls for mixing sugar with the cinnamon for the topping. This is so good!!! I serve it for a casual dinner. In fact that's what we're having for dinner tonight! By the way, I use Panera's Cinnamon Raisin bread and have it sliced thick. OUTRAGEOUS! So good it should be illegal!!!!

Although I think this is a very good recipe, the first time we made it, we didn't give it enough time to cool. The kids liked the flavor but didn't like the consistency towards the center. The second time I cooked it, I combined all ingredients in a bowl for thirty minutes before adding everything to the pan. Cooked it a couple minutes longer and let it set up for half and hour before serving. It was much better the second time around.

This was so simple and delicious. I did NOT have raisin bread so I used challah and added extra cinnamon and a cup of raisins. I assembled the casserole the night before and refrigerated till the next morning when I was ready to bake. I also loosely tented it with foil when it started to brown too much. This is a great make ahead breakfast for company or the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing.

Everyone raved about this. I had a big loaf of old raisin bread and it was so tasty. Easy to make I will certainly make this again. I doubled the recipe and it was perfect. Planning to make again for friends visiting. Am going to use Apple bread I got on sale at Lowes Food Store. I bet it's amazing.

I used a cup less milk due to the other comments. I was so worried about it turning out gooey that I over cooked it and burned the bottom. :( although it had a burned bottom I still enjoyed the top. I will make this again but just be more careful about over cooking!!

I made this yesterday and baked it this morning. DELISH!!! The only thing I did was add chopped walnuts to 1/2 of the casserole. Bobbi

Easy & delicious! I substituted coconut milk for the milk and used cinnamon & sugar for topping. It didn't need syrup on it. The whole family said it was a repeater!

I made this recipe exactly as written and it was absolutely delicious! Like a bread pudding or very rich French toast. Perfect in every way! Make no changes.
