Overnight Caramel French Toast
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min.
I doubled this recipe, made it in a large dish and baked it for an hour. After it cooled a bit, we flipped it over on a jellyroll pan. It turned out amazing!
This is the exact recipe I got from the Iris Inn on my honeymoon 20 years ago. I have been making it for years. It is always a hit - especially on Christmas morning like others have said. I did notice that it doesn't say to either flip the whole casserole or just each serving as you go so the caramel ends up on top.
A great recipe that my whole family loves! A tip for those that think it's too soggy: Use thicker slices of bread and let your bread sit out for a day or two to allow it to dry out instead of toasting it.
this is an Amish recipe and published in an Amish cookbook (2007 p.35) I make this every Christmas morning
I started making this on Christmas morning about three years ago and now my kids expect it. It is delicious
made this in 2 smaller pans, first one was excellent the first morning and the second just about as good as leftovers reheated the next daydid throw in some raisins between the layers of breadwill make again
So yummy if you like custardy french toast! Would be wonderful with some chopped pecans sprinkled in the pan before adding the bread.
I use French bread n cook it a little longer so not mushy
Delicious old favourite.
It had good flavor but an overall mushy texture. I'd probably use the spices and caramel sauce but put the bread on a griddle.
