Cinnamon Baked French Toast

Ingredients

For the French Toast:

  • 1 loaf French Bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk we used skim, but Ree uses whole
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Streusel Topping:

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into pieces
  • Maple syrup-for serving

Instructions

  • Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Tear French bread into chunks, or cut into cubes,  and evenly place in the pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. Pour evenly over bread. Cover pan with saran wrap and store in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add butter pieces and cut into the dry mixture using a fork or your hands. Combine until the mixture resembles sand with a few pea sized chunks. Cover and store mixture in the refrigerator.
  • When you’re ready to bake the French toast, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove casserole from refrigerator  and sprinkle crumb mixture over the top.  Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the French toast is set and golden brown.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup.
