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.

Steps

1
Done

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.

2
Done

Make The Custard

Grab a large bowl, crack in the eggs and whisk well, whisk until light yellow and slightly frothy.

Next, add the milk, cinnamon, sugar (or honey or maple syrup) and salt.

Whisk again until combined and lump free.

3
Done

Soak The Bread Slices and Arrange

Dip each bread slice in the custard then transfer to your baking dish.

Once the baking dish is filled, pour the remaining custard over the top.

4
Done

Allow The Bread To Soak Up The Liquid

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight (8 hours).

5
Done

Bake

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.

I am 100% making this for Christmas morning! This is exactly what I was looking for this year. We have had homemade cinnamon rolls usually and I wanted to try something simpler but equally warm and delicious.
