Cornflake-Coated Baked French Toast

We fed a group of hungry Air Force cadets “breakfast for dinner” with this go-to baked French toast, along with eggs, sausage, bacon and fresh fruit. —Lois Enger, Colorado Springs, CO

    This turned out dry. Not a keeper for my family. I wish it would have worked. Love the time saved by baking the French toast.

    My husband said this was the best french toast he has ever had...and he loves french toast! I thought the syrup was a bit on the sweet side and I liked it better with more cinnamon added.
