Reviews for Peaches & Cream French Toast
"I have made this for my ladies' Bible study brunch and for my kids and got rave reviews both times!"
"I did add a couple tablespoons of peach juice to the cooked syrup. I also added a couple tablespoons of peach juice to the cream cheese and used my mixer and whipped it until smooth. The cream cheese mixture is easy to spread and you are not biting into a clump of cream cheese."
"We loved this!!"
"After reading some of the reviews that said it was bland, not very sweet, etc., I did change the way the ingredients were layered in the pan. I started with half the bread cubes, followed by half the peaches, the cream cheese, the remaining bread cubes and remaining peaches. I drizzled the brown sugar/butter mixture over the top and finished by pouring the egg mixture over all. We thought the french toast had a delicious caramel flavor to it and I will definitely make it this way again. My husband added some maple syrup to his, but I thought it was sweet enough without. I only made a half a batch for the two of us, but am looking forward to making a full batch the next time we have company for brunch!"
"Used maple syrup instead of corn and added allspice to egg mixture. Dusted the top with cinnamon and brown sugar! Delish!"
