This Baked French Toast is so good! I made it for our family when they were visiting for our 8 year old’s birthday and they loved it too! Since then I have made baked french toast for several holidays and when we have had family and friends visit from out of town. This has been a favorite breakfast meal and I have frequently been asked for the recipe.
This baked french toast recipe is simple to prepare too. Just quickly prep it the night before and it’s ready to pop into the oven in the morning. Then all you have to worry about is eating the deliciousness!
Baked French Toast
Recipe adapted from Chew Out Loud
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 loaf Texas sliced white bread
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
Grease a 9 x 13 pan. I’m personally a huge fan of this Pyrex Basics 3 Quart Glass Oblong Baking Dish on Amazon.com (affiliate link). I own two of them and use them frequently for baking and cooking. Combine melted butter and 1 cup brown sugar in a small bowl and then spread into the bottom of your prepared 9×13 pan.
Beat together eggs, milk, and vanilla. Set aside. Mix together 2 Tbsp. brown sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon in another bowl and set aside.
Put one layer of bread on top of butter and brown sugar mixture. Make sure the whole bottom of the pan is covered. Then pour half of your egg mixture on top of bread layer and sprinkle with half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Add another layer of bread. Pour the rest of the egg mixture on top and sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake french toast covered for 30 minutes and then uncovered for 10-15 more minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving if desired.
This is such a great breakfast! It is just perfect how it is. It doesn’t need syrup or anything!
