Tasty Tuesday: Baked French Toast

Posted on: March 5, 2013

The bridal shower theme continues!  As I mentioned yesterday, we chose a brunch menu for my sister’s bridal shower.

I found this recipe for Baked French Toast from marthastewart.com and thought it sounded perfect for our event.  I liked that it could be prepared in advance and didn’t have to be cooked on a griddle immediately before serving.

Hubby looked skeptical about the advance preparation and baking but it turned out really good!  I really liked it, and I’m not one to eat french toast on a regular basis.  Up until a few years ago, I didn’t eat it at all, so the fact that I liked it speaks volumes!

Baked French Toast

6 large eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup plus 3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
10 slices day-old bread (3/4 inch thick)
1 cup pecans (chopped)

Beat eggs in bowl.  Whisk in milk, cream, 1/3 cup sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.

Dip bread slices in batter to coat.  Overlap slices in 9×13 inch glass baking dish.  Pour remaining batter over top.  Store, covered, in refrigerator overnight or for at least 2 hours.

Top with pecans and remaining sugar.  Bake, covered, at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

Uncover; bake until top is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes more.

Serve with syrup.
