Slice crusts from bread; butter bread lightly. Cut bread into finger lengths. Lightly grease oven-proof dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over base, then cover with bread, buttered-side up.
Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add milk, cream, beat until combined. Carefully pour milk mixture over bread (bread will float on top), sprinkle with cinnamon.
