French Toast Souffle

French Toast Souffle

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Bread cubes (1/2- to 3/4-inch square)
  • 12 large eggs
  • 3 cups half & half
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Cinnamon
Butter ramekins or two 7 x 11-inch baking dishes well. Fill dishes 1/2 full with bread cubes. In small bowl, mix butter, cream cheese, and syrup together after softening in microwave -- OK to leave a little lumpy. Spoon this mixture over bread cubes and distribute evenly clear to edges.

In large bowl, beat eggs, half & half, and vanilla. Pour over bread. Your bread cubes will be "floating" at this point -- make sure all cubes are moistened. Dust with cinnamon, cover, and store overnight in refrigerator.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes. It is done when center is raised and firm and whole top is lightly browned. To serve, cut in serving pieces (we cut 6 per casserole dish). Top with diced strawberries and/or sliced bananas and chopped walnuts, then pour small amount of maple syrup and dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately -- this crashes quickly. Enjoy!

This is a popular dish at the Cedar Gables Inn Bed and Breakfast Napa, California.

Could you make this ahead of time and bake at the last minute?

I was afraid it was too soupy before I baked it, but I kept the faith and it turned out GREAT.
