Baked Cinnamon French Toast
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min.
I served this along side other items at our Christmas brunch. It is very custardy and more like a bread pudding than a French toast. It was tasty but very rich. I had quite a bit left over and will likely look for a different recipe next year.
Love this recipe. Make every year for Christmas morning. A favorite of both immediate and extended family.
I made this for the first brunch I ever hosted (along with other recipes from Taste of Home) and it has become a "required" dish whenever family visits or we go to stay with friends. I especially love warming the preserves in the microwave to make a syrup from them to pour over this delightful treat.
My husband made this after the birth of our first child. We fell in love with it then and 11 years later it is still a hit!
My kids go crazy for this. They like it hot...and also out of the frig the next day! I love it cuz it reminds me of my grandma's custard. I have substituted skim milk and half and half to lower the fat and calorie count....with very ittle change in the end result. (I suppose not all would agree....but to me it is worth it to cut the fat and calories significantly)
