Amaretto Brioche Bake
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/3  cup  butter or margarine
  • 1/4  cup  amaretto
  • 2  tablespoons  light-color corn syrup
  • 1 12  ounce  loaf brioche or other sweet bread, cut into 8 slices
  • 4  eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2  cups  half-and-half, light cream, or milk
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  vanilla
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg or cardamom
  • 1 1/2  cups  blackberries (optional)
  • 2  tablespoons  granulated sugar (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside. In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, amaretto, and corn syrup. Cook and stir until mixture comes to boiling. Boil, uncovered, for 1 minute. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Arrange bread slices over brown sugar mixture.

2. In a medium bowl combine eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, salt, and nutmeg. Pour evenly over bread slices. Press lightly with a rubber spatula or the back of a large spoon to moisten all of the bread. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and the top is lightly browned. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

4. Meanwhile, if desired, in a small bowl combine blackberries and granulated sugar; lightly crush berries. Let stand until a syrup forms, stirring occasionally. Spoon berry mixture over each serving.
