French Toast Casserole topped with a Caramel Maple Syrup

I was so excited to make this french toast because I was finally going to make my very first loaf of brioche bread.  I was scared to do this at first but I always had a backup plan since there is an amazing french bakery right near by.  But thank God it worked out well and the house smelled liked buttery brioche goodness.  Made my heart just melt, my eyes fall in love, and my mouth to salivate.  Luckily for me I slapped myself out of brioche trance and got to work.  For the bread I got the recipe from this website and it worked well for me (  If you have your own recipe it will work just fine all you need is a loaf of brioche bread.  Hope all of you enjoy this recipe and make it some day it was to die for!
