Baked French Toast with Cinnamon Sugar Topping

Baked French Toast with Cinnamon Sugar Topping

This recipe is a favorite in our house and it’s so simple. Seriously, every time I make this I always think why don’t I make it more often. I love that you do just about everything the day before. In the morning you just add the topping and pop it into the oven. This was perfect for Mother’s Day.


1 (12-16 oz) loaf French bread, cut into 1-inch slices

8 large eggs

2 cups milk

2 cups half and half

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Butter 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Layer bread slices in pan. Set aside.

In a blender, mix eggs, milk, half and half, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Pour mixture over bread slices. There will be a lot of liquid, this picture is taken after it has been in the fridge for a few hours. So, don’t be alarmed, it soaks in nicely by morning.

Refrigerate, covered, overnight.


3/4 cup butter, softened

1 1/3 cups brown sugar

3 tbsp corn syrup (light or dark, both work great)


Make topping by combining all ingredients; set aside until time to bake (I make this the night before too and leave it covered on the counter.).

topping night before – butter too hard to mix
topping in the morning – mixed

The next day….

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Scoop topping over bread slices. (I use a tablespoon)

Bake for 40-50 minutes until puffed and golden. (Cover with foil if top begins to brown too quickly.) If you like drier French Toast you will want to bake it longer.
