Reviews for Mixed Berry French Toast Bake
"Excellent! I halved the recipe and used cinnamon swirl bread instead of regular bread."
"When I made this was delicious but just a bit soft. I like mine French toad casserole a little crunchy."
"This recipe is fabulous. I have made it twice and both times altered the recipe a little. Once, I made it with cubed Hawaiian bread, that I toasted in the oven. Most recently I used cubed angel food cake that I toasted in the oven. Both versions were real crowd pleasers."
"I had to sweeten it more. It was better the 2nd day after the berries softened and were absorbed into the bread."
"It was really easy to make and turned out delicious! The fruit baked beautifully to where you don't even need syrup. I made mine with whole wheat bread to make it even healthier!"
