National French Toast Day

Yesterday was National French Toast Day. What a delicious day to celebrate! We love french toast with blueberries, bananas & walnuts, strawberries or even Nutella on top. This recipe is one that is prepared and can set overnight.

Victoria Baked Caramel French Toast

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

1-inch thick slices bread (the thicker the better), approximately 6 pieces

5 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar and corn syrup. Stirring constantly cook over moderate heat just until the butter melts. Pour the brown sugar mix into an ungreased 9x13-inch baking dish.

Arrange bread slices in a single layer overtop the brown sugar mix; set aside.

To prepare the batter, beat the eggs, milk and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl until combined. Pour the batter over the bread in the pan, saturating all the slices. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover the baking dish and cook for 30-35 minutes or until the center appears set and the top is lightly brown. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Top with fresh fruit and powdered sugar.
