Directions:
Combine brown sugar, butter and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Pour the brown sugar mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish and layer sliced peaches over the sugar coating, then top with slices of French bread. Whisk together the eggs and vanilla and pour over the bread slices. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove the dish from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Spoon out and serve warm, dusted with powdered sugar.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is one I found when I was in a creative mood one day, and although it's a little time consuming, it's worth it. It is a great brunch dish, as it is is reminiscent of a bread pudding. It could even be served as a dessert, with ice cream.
