- 1 loaf of Bread (I used Challah)
- 4 Eggs
- 2 cup Milk
- 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

- Powdered Sugar

French toast bake is the perfect make-ahead breakfast for any special occasion or holiday morning!
This recipe is perfect for a holiday morning when you have your friends and family over for a big morning brunch.
You can easily make this dish the night before, leave it in the fridge overnight then simply stick it into the oven once you wake up!
As it bakes, you can set the table and get your tea or coffee started!
With each season comes varieties of fruit. I love serving this with fresh berries but use anything you have on hand.
Cut The Bread
First, cut your bread into thick(ish) slices and see how many you can fit into your baking dish. I
prefer using an oval shaped dish and just do one row of slices.
Make The Custard
Soak The Bread Slices and Arrange
Allow The Bread To Soak Up The Liquid
After the bread has soaked in the liquid, remove the plastic wrap and add some blueberries (the more the better in my opinion).
Bake the french toast bake (uncovered) in a preheated 350F oven for 45-55 minutes.
Top the french toast bake with maple syrup and/or powered sugar as well as more berries or nuts if desired.
