This recipe is delicious, almost like a bread pudding! I too used a crusty loaf of french bread and only 10 eggs. For the cream cheese I only used 1.5 packages. I let them soften on the counter and then beat them with some powdered sugar and lemon zest. Please trust me as this makes all the difference! I was then able to spoon it over the 1st layer. It baked wonderfully. Do not over bake, for those worrying about it being mushy, I let it sit for a little and it set up and cut just fine. One batch of syrup was enough for us, I added more lemon zest and some brandy. Made for a very nice Father's Day brunch.
