Perfect dish for Christmas brunch. Followed the recipe with some changes in amounts. When I began pouring the syrup into the baking dish, it just seemed like there was way too much, like the bread would be swimming in it. I only used about 2/3 of the syrup. I used sliced slightly stale french bread and the amount I had was way too much for a single layer, so I put two full layers of bread in the baking dish. I did add some cinnamon into the egg mixture. I followed others' advice and let the dish sit on the counter about 40" before baking it. The cooking time was spot on, the casserole wasn't soggy at all so next time I will cut back on the syrup quantity and use a double layer of bread again. Everyone just loved this dish and I will make it again and again! There was real maple syrup on the table, some used it, some didn't. Great stuff!
