Baked French Toast, recipe two

I made this yesterday for a breakfast-at-night supper, and it was fantastic.

Baked French Toast

Cut bread into 1-inch squares; enough to cover the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan.

Lightly beat 2 eggs, 3 Tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Stir in 2 1/4 cups milk.
Pour over bread, turning pieces to coat well.

At this point, you may stop, cover, and refrigerate over night, if you wish.

Preheat oven to 375º F.

Combine 1/2 cup flour, 6 Tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional).
Cut in 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Scatter 1 cup blueberries and/or strawberries (this time I used just strawberries) over the bread.
Sprinkle with the crumb mixture.

Bake about 40 minutes until golden brown.

I heated some maple syrup and poured it over the top. Out of this world delicious! You may see another 'Baked French Toast' in the recipes on the sidebar, but this one is a little different. I enjoy them both.

  1. Wow, this sounds fantastic.
    What we call French Toast here is just bread dipped in beaten egg and fried. I have it with Marmite on.

  2. That's ours too. Actually beaten eggs and milk, sometimes with vanilla added. And I top that with maple syrup too.

  3. This looks wonderful! We are big french toast fiends - and our crowd would love this. Homemade applesauce is the usual treat. Thank you.

  5. Here in France, "French Toast" is called "Pain Perdu" Lost bread! named thus because it was a way of using stale bread which otherwise would have been lost, "perdu"
    Goodness though, yours looks sensational!!! I will try it during Christmas when calorie counting flies out of the window!
