Reviews for Overnight Apple French Toast
"I made this over the weekend and it was a great hit. Followed the recipe. It is a keeper for me."
"i make this recipe every year on christmas eve. its a great way to start christmas morning, i pop it in the oven as soon as i get up and its ready to eat by the time everyone is done opening presents."
"This was amazing! Delicious and easy to make. I put it all together Christmas Eve and it was ready to bake the next morning. I have to say for me personally it was a bit too sweet to eat for breakfast but everyone else went crazy for it."
"we didnt have apple jam, strawberry jam does substitute quite finely."
"Delicious! The brown sugar turns into a wonderful caramel sauce. The bread was very soft, so someone who is picky about things being "soggy" may not enjoy, but I think dipping the bread for less time might fix some of that too. I did use more egg mixture than the recipe called for. I enjoyed it as is."
