One loaf of French semolina or challah bread, thickly sliced
1 1/2 cups of sliced peaches or enough to cover your baking pan

In a small saucepan combine the syrup, butter, and brown sugar. Simmer until syrupy. Pour this mixture into a 9 x 13 inch Pyrex baking pan; set aside. Place the slided peaches evenly on top of the syrup. Slice the loaf into thick slices and place over syrup/peaches in baking pan.
