In a small bowl, beat 4 eggs with 1/2 cup milk. Stir in maple extract, and pour the mixture over the bread pieces. Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, pull the casserole dish out of the fridge. Let it sit at room temperature while the oven preheats to 350º.
