Cinnamon Pecan Baked French Toast

I love baked french toast, it can be made the night before and is so yummy!

6 thick slices cinnamon bread
Creme Fraiche
1/2 C Butter, 1 Stick
1 1/2 C Brown Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1/2 t Nutmeg
10 eggs
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 C Heavy Cream
1 T Vanilla Extract
Chopped pecans


Spray 13 by 9 inch baking dish with Pam. Spread each slice bread with light layer of creme fraiche and place in dish. In separate bowl, melt butter and brown sugar. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, salt and cream and pour over bread. Top with brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle pecans over entire dish. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

Leave covered and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar.
