We had this for breakfast this morning and it was very good. After reading other reviews about how sweet it was I didn't add the corn syrup, the white sugar or powdered sugar on top. I think I had the brown sugar mixture a bit uneven because some places it seemed to be a bit much and other places was just right. I toasted the pecans for the richer flavor. I had both challah and french bread I needed to use up, not enough of one for the pan so I used both, cut into 1 inch slices. In the places where the bread didn't fit together tight I put in some pieces of bread to take up the space. I had 4 eggg whites in the fridge so I used all 4 and the 2 whole eggs. I forgot to add the orange zest but the orange flavor was still noticable, I will add it next time for some extra flavor. I baked it for 40 minutes because I wanted it a bit more brown that what it was at 35. We let it sit for about 10 minutes before cutting it and had no soggy bread problems, nice and moist and tasty. Next time I make this I was thinking about mixing some cinnamon with the brown sugar, melting the butter in the bottom of the pan and sprinkling the brown sugar over it.
