4 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
10 to 12 slices day-old French bread (3/4-inch thick)
In medium saucepan, over medium heat, bring brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup to a boil, stirring constantly. Add apples, reduce heat, and cook just until sauce begins to thicken, about 3 to 5 minutes. Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan.
In separate 9x13-inch pan place French bread slices on bottom.

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 eggs, beaten
