Peach French Toast

Let the aroma of baked peaches, brown sugar and cinnamon wake up your family. When you serve the tender slices of French toast, be sure to scoop up the golden syrup in the bottom of the pan and drizzle it over the top. —Geraldine Casey, Anderson, Indiana

    I tried it on Easter and it was a hit! Wonderful to make it up the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. Definitely a keeper!
