Cinnamon Baked French Toast

Last Saturday for Kellen's birthday we decided to have a brunch.
I wanted to have some sort of bread dish,
whether it be pancakes, scones or muffins.
So while browsing through Pinterest I came across this
Cinnamon Baked French Toast.
Oh. My.
It was absolutely delicious.
It really didn't even need any syrup or anything.
I think the bread was key to the recipe.
Challah is one of my favorite breads and it
works perfect in this dish.

Cinnamon Baked French Toast

  • 1 loaf stale bread (I used challah)
  • 8 whole eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cold butter, cubed
  1. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Tear the bread into chunks and place them in the greased pan.
  3. Mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the butter and mix until the batter comes somewhat together, like little pebbles. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Take your pan with the soaking bread inside and sprinkle crumb mixture on top.
  7. If you like soggier french toast, bake for 45 minutes. For a firmer and less liquid-y french toast, bake for an hour.
  8. Serve warm with maple syrup and butter, if desired.
