French Toast Bake

We have been making this French Toast Bake for many years as it is a much-loved family favorite.  It is an easy oven baked French Toast Casserole that is soaked overnight in an egg custard.  Real maple syrup and butter are a required topping.  A great recipe for a holiday gathering or special weekend breakfast.

French Toast Bake

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 stick (1/2 cup ) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 eggs
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 loaf of St Pierre Brioche Cinnamon Twist Bread, 14.1 ounces*

Spray a  2 1/2 quart sized baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.  Set aside,

Add the light brown sugar and cinnamon to the melted butter and stir until mixed.  Pour the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan, spreading in an even layer.

Arrange the bread in two layers over the brown sugar mixture.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, and vanilla  together; pour over the bread.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown, about 30-40  minutes.  Serve with butter and real maple syrup, if desired.

Notes:
I used St Pierre Brioche Cinnamon Twist Bread for this recipe.  However, other breads such as Texas Toast, Challah, sour dough or Brioche can be used.

My Bee Balm has faded fast but the butterflies did enjoy it earlier in the summer.
