Cinnamon and sugar top this fuss-free fare that tastes like French toast. Since you assemble it the previous night, you save time in the morning. —Sharyn Adams, Crawfordsville, Indiana

This is fabulous! I registered with Taste of Home just so I could give this recipe the praise it deserves. Absolutely amazing and so easy. I was looking for a make ahead french toast recipe. I found several, but this one really stood out and the reviews for it were good. I made this exactly as the recipe states. I used Challah bread and I had people asking me for the recipe, which I gladly supplied. I baked at 350 just like the recipe states for 45 min. and it was perfect. Not soggy at all, not too dry either. Perfect...thanks for sharing this recipe.

Printed this out a couple of months ago, finally made it this weekend. Excellent! I would make it again for sure. I used the tip of a previous reviewer and put the bread mixture into a gallon sized ziplock bag and put into fridge over night. Poured into the greased baking pan next morning, easy. Next time I would double the cinnamon and maybe add some nutmeg, but we like those flavors. Otherwise very good. Also reheats well in microwave if you have leftovers. A keeper!

Awesome!! This was really tasty. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and did not use all of the liquid. I probably used 3/4 of it though. At the end of the baking time called for, I uncovered and baked for about 10 minutes longer. I did this to crisp the top and to avoid the mushy center some talked about. Turned our perfect!
