Our family and friends love this recipe! I used Pancake syrup rather than pure maple syrup, and it turns out fine. I have also split the recipe, and baked it in an 8" square pan with excellent results. It is a favorite for brunch potlucks, and I'm always asked to bring it!
Way, way, way too sweet!! OMG - it is
sickening sweet. I used cinnamon bread, should have at least skipped the additional sugar. Never again.... Wow....
I made this for Christmas morning brunch with our grown kids and their significant others. It was a huge hit and requested to have it again next year.
The (room temperature) regular cream cheese didn't melt at all - NOT low fat. Expected more of a maple syrup flavor. Just could not use 2 Tbs of vanilla. Seemed too much.
I halved the recipe & baked it in an 8-inch square pan. I left out the nutmeg. It was delicious! Love that I can prepare it the night before. This was my first time making an overnight French toast bake - have been wanting to try one for a long time & finally felt brave enough to do it with this recipe.
