In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat melt the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup until fully combined. Pour the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Slice the bread into 1 1/2-inch in width slices. Nestle the slices into the prepared baking dish, squeezing them to fit.
Place the eggs, half and half, vanilla, and salt into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture over the bread.
Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature before baking.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes at 350℉ or until the edges become puffy and golden brown. Serve with homemade whipped cream and berries.
