Cinnamon French Toast



  • ------------------------------------

    This cinnamon French toast is something you can make ahead the night before or fix in a jiffy in the morning. It doesn’t matter whether you let it sit in your fridge overnight before baking or you bake it right away. It will taste as good as bread pudding either way. This delicious recipe is from Ree of The Pioneer Woman.

    Ingredients

    For the French Toast:
    Butter, For Greasing
    1 loaf Crusty Sourdough Or French Bread
    8 whole Eggs
    2 cups Whole Milk
    1/2 cup Heavy Cream
    1/2 cup Sugar
    1/2 cup Brown Sugar
    2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract

    For the Topping:
    1/2 cup Flour
    1/2 cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
    1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    Freshly Grated Nutmeg (optional)
    1 stick Cold Butter, Cut Into Pieces
    Warm Syrup, For Serving
    Butter, For Serving
    1 cup Fresh Blueberries, For Serving

    Instructions

    For the French toast: Grease the baking pan with butter. Tear the bread into chunks, or cut into cubes, and evenly distribute in the pan. Crack the eggs in a big bowl. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over the bread. Cover the pan tightly and store in the fridge until needed (overnight preferably). Or you can make it and bake it right away—delicious no matter what!

    For the topping: Mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and some nutmeg in a separate bowl. Stir together using a fork. Add the butter and with a pastry cutter, and mix it all together until the mixture resembles fine pebbles. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge.

    When you’re ready to bake the casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the casserole from the fridge and sprinkle the topping over the top. Bake for 45 minutes for a softer, more bread pudding texture or for 1 hour-plus or more for a firmer, crisper texture.

    Scoop out individual portions. Top with butter and drizzle with warm pancake syrup and sprinkle with blueberries.
