As is, this recipe is excellent. A few important points to be stated. First, a nice dense French bread must be used for it to hold its shape and it must be left overnight to have time to absorb the liquids. It should also be allowed to come to room temperature before baking. This recipe is meant to have a bread pudding consistency and I have even made it by cubing the bread and adding apple chunks, cranberries and raisins. Awesome dessert. I think what most reviewers are looking for from a consistency standpoint based on the modifications/reviews I've read is "Overnight French Toast, found in Company's Coming Christmas Edition". I've made this for years for Christmas morning. It is the number 1 request from the extended family that comes to brunch. It doesn't use the sweet sauce poured over it. Instead, I serve it with pure maple syrup, or warmed apple, peach and/or strawberry preserves.
