I usually don't like doing things different from what the original recipe says, but I did here. I was feeding quite a few people so I used the whole loaf of French Bread. I buttered my glass dish and dipped the slices not briefly, but for a few seconds on each side so the liquid soaked into the slices. When I layered the slices, I overlapped them slightly so all (except the 2 end pieces)would fit. I then poured the rest of the liquid over. In the morning, I poured the little bit of liquid out of the pan before baking. I used only ¾ cup of brown sugar which was plenty sweet for us. I also used walnuts because that's what I had on hand. I moved the slices apart a little so the topping could run down in between the slices a little. It came out super good. EVERYONE LOVED IT! IT WAS THE BEST BREAKFAST EVER THEY SAID...YOUNG AND OLD! The top was crunchier then at the bottom but that was perfectly alright. And the overlapping prevented the sticking that other reviews have mentioned. No sticking here at all! Try it...it's delicious!
