Baked Vanilla French Toast


Recipe: Baked Vanilla French Toast

Summary: This is one of those fabulous recipes that you can prepare the night before and let the bread soak in the milk mixture overnight. In the morning, there is no-fuss at all since the dish involves very little prep and it just bakes to perfection!


    • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 1/2 cup half-and-half or light cream
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 8 slices dry white or whole wheat bread
    • 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
    • Maple syrup
    • Sliced strawberry (optional)


  1. In a shallow bowl, beat together eggs, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides.
  2. The egg/milk mixture is poured over the bread, covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight. In the morning, prepare a simple crumb mixture (1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/3 cup butter).
  3. Then remove the plastic wrap, sprinkle on the crumb mixture, and bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 minutes. Serve with maple syrup and sliced strawberry.
