Baked French Toast with Home Style Syrup Recipe

Baked French Toast with Home Style Syrup Recipe

This variation of typical French toast is both simple to prepare and delicious. And the homemade syrup has more flavor than bottled pancake syrup ever could. I hope you like them both! —Deloris Asmus, Waseca, Minnesota
