Sorry for the lack of posts recently. My niece and nephew stayed the week with us, and while I did do some cooking, I did not have time to update the old blog.
This overnight baked french toast has been making the rounds on the cooking board I frequent and it sounded so good. I love French Toast, so to be able to have it in the morning with minimal work was right up my alley. You simply prepare the night before and pop it in the oven when you’re ready. It does not disappoint. My niece and nephew GOBBLED this up, they loved it!
Overnight Baked French Toast
Adapted from: She Cooks and Bakes!
6 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1.5 tbsp sugar
maple syrup & powdered sugar for topping
Spray a 9×13 casserole with nonstick cooking spray.
Lightly butter 1 side of each slice of bread. Arrange buttered sides up in 1 layer. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, nutmeg and salt. Pour over the bread, cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat your oven to 400, remove cover and bake 25-30 minutes, or until turning golden. Top with syrup and powdered sugar.
