Baked French Toast

I first encounted baked french toast at my church’s women’s breakfast.   I thank God for Linda Mueller who loving prepared it and for the baked french toast itself.  It has now become a staple in our house for special birthday breakfasts, PTO teacher breakfasts and for Mr. D, who at 13 can single handedly eat a whole large pan of it without any ill effects.  The other thing I love about it is that is is super easy – always a plus in my book.

Scrumptious baked french toast


Baked French Toast


  • 1- 1 pound loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2-1 t. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 T. light corn syrup

Cooking Directions:

  1. Butter a 9x13 baking dish (I find that this recipe makes more than one pan - so go ahead & do two if you find the bread fits into two pans)
  2. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and cornsyrup; heat until bubbling. Pour over the bread/egg mixture.
  4. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes.
  5. Say a little prayer of thankfulness.
