I think my wife put it best when she said, "Holy Cow! This tastes just like a sticky bun." Only she was so excited, she didn't say "cow". It's not the prettiest baked French toast I've ever made, but it is one of the best tasting. It's very sweet and filling, so make sure to set aside a few hours later in the day to exercise. The only change I made to the recipe as submitted was to use a 12x8 baking dish (It worked fine). I used almost an entire loaf of French bread... everything but the butts. (Recipe submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in December 2013.)

How To Make Overnight Caramel French Toast

Lightly grease up a 13x9x2" baking dish; set aside.

Bring brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil. Remove from heat; pour into baking dish. Top with 6 slices bread; sprinkle with combined sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with remaining bread.

Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove dish from refrigerator; preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30 to 35 minutes.

To serve: Carefully invert the baking dish onto a serving platter so the beautiful caramel is on the top.

Best French toast ever! Everyone liked the bottom pieces best; they had the most caramel. The top pieces seem "healthier".

This has become a family favorite for Christmas morning breakfast. It also quickly became a favorite at a work breakfast and I've had many requests for the recipe. We love the recipe but I have also added toasted chopped pecans on top for an added twist.

Everybody really loved it! Instead of using bread slices, I cut a loaf of French bread into 1-inch cubes. Worked great that way! This recipe makes my 10 lists for recipes to serve for brunch! Excellent!

I too use this for special brunch gatherings and all rave about it. I use thick sliced Italian or French bread, a few days old works well.
