Baked Raisin French Toast

Baked Raisin French Toast

(7 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 loaf good-quality raisin bread
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 and 1/2 cups half-n-half or heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Melt butter and brown sugar in microwave until blended and smooth. Use to coat the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking dish. Place bread in 2 layers in pan, taking up all space, packing bread in, but in single layers. Whisk other ingredients until well-blended. Pour over bread, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Cook in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, uncover and cook for another 15. Dish will puff up and then fall. Serve inverted with whipped cream.

The quality of the bread makes all the difference in this recipe so be sure to get a good one. Day-old bread works best, so check your bakery's about-to-expire discount shelf.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
