Baked Maple French Toast

Baked Maple French Toast

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 8 slices white bread (cinnamon raisin bread works too - trust me)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs - separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cut each bread slice in half diagonally. Brush each piece (both sides) with butter.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes. Remove bread from oven.

Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Arrange bread pieces side-by-side in a lightly greased 9x9 inch baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, maple syrup, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix well.

In a seperate metal or glass bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.

Fold yolk mixture into the egg whites. Pour combined mixture over the pieces of bread in the baking pan.

Bake about 25 minutes until golden brown.

To serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with butter and syrup.

It's very important to use PURE maple syrup in this recipe.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Franklin for this recipe.

I don't have pure maple syrup. How bad would it be if I bought pancake syrup with some maple syrup in it? Obviously, the flavor would be different... but not good?

It was AMAZING! Loved it! The only thing I didn't like was having to let it bake for 25 minutes, with the smells wafting from the oven, but it was so worth it. It was really soft, and yes, a little mushy, but I think that was mostly the maple syrup, which I love. My favorite part was probably the fluffy egg whites mixed with everything, that gave it a cake-like texture. What a fantastic recipe!

I thought this recipe was great!! First off, the milk is mentioned in the ingredients, but not in the instructions...however, you just add the milk with the egg yolks...simple mistake made. Second, if the bread doesn't fit into the pan you're using...use a bigger pan, as there is no size pan mentioned specifically, you can use whatever you want to...I used a deep dish cookie sheet. The bottom does come out somewhat soggy, but not to much...if you decrease your amount of won't have that problem...great recipe, I will use it again.

This recipe was apsolutely horrible. I made it and the consistency of the mixture didn't seem right at all. The peices of bread were all caked together and it stuck to the pan. I poured the mixture over the bread and when I pulled it out of the oven it was hard and tasted terrible. What a rotten recipe... I suggest to not even print it out!

Tried this on 10/22/07 and it was terrible. First, milk is mentioned in the ingredients however it is not included in the instructions. Second, size of the baking dish would not hold 8 slices of bread it took all I could to get 3 slices. Third, the top was browned but the bottom was soggy and unappealing.
