Baked French Toast {54/365}

{My piece drizzled with maple syrup...delicious!}

I've made this Baked French Toast several times now and every time we want to eat the entire pan in one sitting.  We don't.  But it's just that good.  

Besides the fact that it is amazingly delicious, there are other great things about this recipe.  1) It's perfect to make the night before!  Just sprinkle on the streusel topping before you bake it and then throw it in the oven. 2) It's awesome for using up stale or freezer burnt bread.  (This batch I made this morning is from bread that had been hiding in the church freezer for 8+ months and was really freezer burnt.  The french toast still tasted fantastic!)

The first time I made this Baked French Toast, I used the exact ingredients, but since then I've changed it up a bit to make it not so uber-fattening.  My changes are:

-Use 2% milk (or skimmer) instead of whole milk
-Use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream
-Add an extra egg if using skimmer milk
-Reduce the sugar from 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup 
-Increase the cinnamon in the streusel topping from 1tsp. to 1 1/2 tsp.  We like cinnamon!

Now, go make this for your breakfast tomorrow.  You'll thank me.  =)


  1. Shame on you. Using our communion bread for breakfast. Sacrilege.

  2. Wow, that looks yummy! How long do you think this could stay in the fridge?? We're spending a few nights away next week and I would love to prep this ahead of time and take it with us to have one morning.

  3. Renee, I'm not sure! I have let it sit 24 hours in the fridge before baking and it was fine. Beyond that I'm not sure. My only thought is that the longer it sits, there may be a change in texture once it is baked. Again, I'm just not sure. Now after it's baked it stays yummy for days! Fresh is always the best of course, but we love the leftovers too.

    If you do let it sit for a while, let me know how it turns out!

  4. Hmmm, well we leave Wed afternoon, so maybe I could make it Wed morning and have it Thurs morning? I think I'll try it! Hubby is a french toast lover, so he was on board with the idea though he "hates" it when I overload the van when we go anywhere, ha ha!

  5. This looks amazing! I am definitely going to try it!
