Baked French Toast Recipe

By Tammy Algood Published: February 1, 2015

  • Yield: 8 Servings



  1. Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, butter and 2 tablespoons of the syrup. Stir until the sugar completely dissolves. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Arrange the bread slices in a single layer on top, pushing the slices tightly together.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour evenly over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, let the casserole stand uncovered at room temperature for 15 minutes. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden-brown. Serve hot with a sprinkling of the powdered sugar and the remaining syrup.
