Preparation:

  1. Cut the loaf of bread into bite-sized cubes. Set aside for later. If possible, use slightly stale bread. It will soak up the egg mixture better and retain more flavor.
  2. Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Add in the milk, brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Wisk everything until it is thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes and toss until they are well coated. It should sit for at least half an hour up to overnight.
  4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Transfer the bread cubes into a grease baking pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until the custard is fully set.
  6. Pull the casserole out of the oven and allow it to cool for about ten minutes.
  7. While the french toast is baking, leave the butter out to soften.
  8. When the butter becomes malleable, mash it together with the maple syrup until they become fully incorporated. Allow it to chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat.
  9. Serve portions of the casserole warm with pats of the maple butter and drizzles of maple syrup.
