Coat the bottom of a 13x9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray or melted butter.

Combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, apple and vanilla. Place bread in a single layer in dish. Pour egg mixture over bread, turning to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, preheat oven to 425. Sprinkle pecans over bread slices and drizzle with melted butter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until puffy.

Milk was not listed as one of the ingredients. When it came down to the directions, milk was supposed to be combined with eggs, sugar, cinnamon, apple and vanilla. I was confused and didn't know how much milk I was supposed to use. Fortunately, my guess was accurate. As a result, this recipe was very good. My husband and I enjoyed it.
