So the story goes that my sister and niece were coming over and staying the night and I really wanted to make a “wow” breakfast for them so I asked my sister if she would like a baked french toast and she said yes…so, my search began for an amazing french toast recipe. I looked through all my existing recipes, I searched the web for french toast recipes but nothing was popping out at me…until I found a french toast recipe that had a crumb topping on it. I don’t know if you would agree but I find baked french toast can be very bland and so with the crumb topping I thought it might add a little pizzazz.
This french toast recipe is super easy, I basically bought a loaf of bread (croissants would work lovely as well) and had my daughter tear it up into pieces for me
Since I had time and I was able to plan for it, I had my daughter tear the bread in the morning and I left it in the pan all day to dry out, french toast originated because in the olden days (omg..do I sound like my mom now), they didn’t want the bread to go to waste so they created a way to use up day old bread. If you do not have time to make your bread stale, it’s ok this french toast recipe will still turn out great. I then made the crumb topping and put it in the refrigerator.
So, here is how easy this recipe really is, before you go to bed you mix the egg and creams together…you pour that mixture over your bread and you cover it until morning.
In the morning you preheat your oven, sprinkle on your crumble
and then you bake it for 50-60 minutes. Out of all the baked french toast recipes I have ever tried, this by far is the best one I’ve ever made!!!
we even made them into “muffins” for work and everyone loved them!
