  • Stir together egg, milk, 2 teaspoons of sugar, the vanilla, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the bread slices in the baking dish. Use the back of a wide spatula to press the bread into the egg mixture to coat. Cover with foil and chill overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until the sandwiches puff up and the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack. Let stand 15 minutes.

Stir together the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar and the cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Add the raspberry puree. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Transfer to a bowl. Serve warm or cover and chill until ready to use.

  • Drizzle each serving withthe raspberry sauce and top with the peach slices. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
