8 slices cinnamon-raisin bread
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted
4 eggs
2 egg yolks
3/4 c. sugar
3 c. milk
1 c. whipping cream
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1 c. hot water
Powdered sugar

1 c. fresh raspberries
1 c. fresh strawberries, sliced

1. Brush both sides of bread slices with melted butter. Line 11x15 inch baking pan with buttered bread slices. In large bowl, beat eggs and egg yolks. Whisk in sugar, milk, cream, and vanilla. Strain and pour over bread slices. Chill 2 hours or up to overnight. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees. Place baking pan on large baking sheet with sides.

Cool slightly; cut into squares and top with powdered sugar and fresh berries.
