French Toast Casserole

This yummy breakfast casserole is perfect for lazy weekends, when you have company for breakfast, or your next brunch. I made it for a ladies' get together a few weeks ago so I could try it out. It was a tad dry, so I definitely recommend serving it hot with a drizzle of maple syrup. 
This would also be excellent with a fruit topping and some whip cream, but I didn't get that decadent this time!

5 cups bread cubes
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup white sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, softened and cut into small pieces
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter an 8X8 baking pan. Line the pan with the bread cubes. In a large bowl beat together the eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes. Dot with the butter and let stand for 10 minutes to allow bread to soak up the egg mixture. Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.
