1 loaf sliced whole wheat bread
1 1/2 cups milk
6 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar, divided
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

Syrup, for serving
- Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- Cut each bread slice in half from corner to corner. Overlap bread slices, crust side up, in prepared baking dish. In a large bowl, mix milk, eggs, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour egg mixture over bread. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes until bread soaks in the egg mixture.
- In a small bowl, mix the rest of the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over bread mixture. Bake until light golden-brown and the center is set, about 25 to 35 minutes. Top with peaches. Slice and serve with syrup.
