cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup chopped pecans
10
slices (1/2 inch thick) French bread

6

2
teaspoons vanilla
3/4

Directions

  1. 1 Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. 2 In 2-quart saucepan, mix 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup butter, the maple syrup and espresso. Cook 4 to 6 minutes over medium heat until sugars dissolve and mixture is smooth. Pour into baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans. Top with 10 slices French bread, cutting slices in half if necessary to fit in baking dish in single layer.
  3. 3 Drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over bread in pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup pecans. Top with 10 slices French bread.
  4. 4 In large bowl, beat custard ingredients with wire whisk. Slowly pour mixture over French bread. Press down on bread with spatula so all of bread absorbs egg mixture. Cover; refrigerate 8 to 24 hours.
  5. 5 When ready to bake, heat oven to 350°F. Uncover; bake 35 to 40 minutes until puffed and lightly browned. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  6. 6 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat whipped topping ingredients with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Serve each piece upside down with a dollop of whipped topping.
