This moist French toast bake is a snap to assemble the night before and bake in the morning. While it's pleasantly sweet as is, let guests drizzle raspberry syrup over the top for a finishing touch. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"Couldn't find plain cinnamon bread, so used oat-nut with extra cinnamon in the bread cubes, egg mixture, & topping mixture. Also used blueberries (were fresher). Turned out very well!! Omitted almonds on one end & my 18mo old grand daughter also enjoyed!! Will make again."

"Had to take breakfast to work for 20 people. Made the raspberry one but also decided to make an apple one too. I used 3 med apples diced (deleted the raspberries and almonds). I put the apples in the microwave for a few minutes to assure cooking all the way through in the morning. I turned the apple/bread/egg mixture over a few times before refrigerating. It was a bigger hit than the raspberry one. I will definitely make them both again."
