Baked French Toast

This recipe is a great way to get rid of old bread. It's a lot easier than trying to do french toast on a stove-top, the only downside is you have to do a little prep work the night before.


  • 120 ml butter
  • 180 ml brown sugar
  • 15 ml ground cinnamon1)
  • 300 grams of bread2)
  • Batter
    • 6 eggs
    • 120 ml milk
    • pinch of salt
  • Optional Toppings:
    • Blueberries
    • Whipped Cream
    • Syrup
    • Crushed nuts


  1. Melt butter, and use it to coat a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Mix brown sugar and spices and sprinkle evenly over melted butter.
  3. Tear bread into bite-sized pieces and arrange evenly in the baking dish.
  4. Beat batter ingredients in a bowl, pour over bread.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for about 8 hours (or overnight).
  6. Preheat oven to 175°C.
  7. Bake in oven till golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  8. Serve with optional topping.
Or optionally: nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom, or allspice.
I highly recommend whole grain bread. It's much healthier and tastes great in this recipe.
