Easy French Toast Casserole

(8 servings)

  • 1 16-ounce loaf of cinnamon swirl or cinnamon raisin bread - cut into cubes to yield about 8 cups
  • 6 large eggs - beaten
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • confectioners' sugar and maple syrup for topping - optional
This recipe takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Then you need to let it refrigerate for a few hours and the baking time is just under an hour. If you don't have cinnamon bread, you can use white bread. Just mix together 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup raisins and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle that between the layers of bread cubes. It will taste like you used cinnamon bread. The reviews I got from friends for this dish were "so fluffy" and "very custardy". Overall: I loved it and it was as easy as the name implies. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in June 2014.)
