Baking french toast? So much easier! Put it in the oven and forget about it until you’re ready to eat. This makes me feel like I’m having a little Christmas (morning) in July.
Baked Cinnamon French Toast
1/2 loaf of bread
1 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice bread into 1 inch square pieces.
Coat an 8×8 dish with non-stick cooking spray and lay bread into pan. Whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla. Pour slowly over bread pieces, allowing them to absorb mixture.
Slice butter into small pieces and combine with flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix dry ingredients together. You may like to slightly melt the butter to allow them to blend more easily. Spread cinnamon mixture over bread.
Bake in oven for one hour or until golden brown and crisp.
