Baked French Toast

OK this one actually should be credited to Jacque as she found the blog site where this recipe came from. I made it this morning for Travis Lovell and his sister and we loved it. I did not put berries on it before I baked it, but made a berry syrup to go on top. The best is that you can make it the night before and then throw it in the oven.
One 8 oz loaf or 1/2 lb French bread or cinnamon bread
(I used Smith's cinnamon swirl, absolutely delicious)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups skim milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp butter
2 cups fresh or frozen berries

Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Arrange bread slices in the dish. In a large bowl, stir eggs, milk, granulated sugar and vanilla. Slowly pour over bread. Press lightly with the back of a large spoon to moisten bread. Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight. Combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. With forks, cut in butter until pieces are the size of small peas.

Before baking, sprinkle berries over bread; sprinkle flour mixture over berries. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 oven for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted off-center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into squares. Serve with syrup.
