light brown sugar
light corn syrup
2 1/2 cups
1% low-fat milk
This was a delicious and easy to prepare recipe. I love being able to put breakfast together the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. I had to tweak the recipe a little because I only had a demi loaf of day old French bread. I was able to get 8 small 1 inch slices out of the loaf. I was going to halve the recipe but ended up just tweaking it a little. Here are the changes I made: 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 c light corn syrup, 8 slices of french bread, 1 3/4 c 2% milk. Everything else I left the same. I baked it in an 8x8 glass baking dish. I mixed together the cinnamon and sugar mixture but ended up only using a little over half because that seems like enough. I baked 50 mins and it came out of the oven perfect! My husband loved it, so I will be making this again in the future!
Besides cutting down a bit on the sugar I followed the directions exactly. However I could only fit 6 slices of bread in the pan, they were pretty big slices and I had to squeeze them to fit. That being said, I felt there was way too much milk. The bread was really wet after baking. It had really great flavor and the house smelled wonderful while baking. I may try again using less milk and maybe more egg.
My son loves french toast and asked for it today for breakfast. I had a small loaf of day old french bread. I halved the recipe, but used 2 eggs. I did NOT refrigerate overnight, just prepared and let sit for 15 minutes to soak. I also mixed the cinnamon in the egg mixture. Skipped the sprinkle of sugar before baking. Served with blueberry and spice sauce recipe.
The overall flavor of this french toast was delicious and a big hit with my family when I made it for our New Year's Day brunch but in the future, I will make a few slight modifications to the recipe. First, I will just let it sit for maybe a couple of hours before I plan to bake it, next I will use parchment paper on the bottom of the pan and instead of pouring the brown sugar abd corn syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan, I think it's best to pour it on top of the bread.
I made the recipe as is, and feel it is only 4 stars. The flavor is good, but the texture is MUSH. If I were to make it again, I would cut the milk by nearly half. It is also very sweet, I would be tempted to cut back on the corn syrup. The caramel side of each piece was the best part.
This was great. I tried it for Saturday brunch with the ladies from my church. Because of the reviews that it may be a little too sweet, I didn't use the syrup.
This was a hit. I will use it again,it's a time saver.
This was so yummy. I don't like when people change a recipe aropund and they rate it, but here I go. I didn't have time to let it set over night becuase my kids were hungry now,of course! But I really wanted to try this one. I followed the recipe and cooked the brown sugar, etc. Instead of pouring the egg mixture over the bread, I continued to make regular french toast on the stove. I tol some of the brown sugar mixture and spread it in a skillet, dunked the bread into the egg mixture and put it in the skillet and cooked as usual. It still turned out wonderful! I can't wait to plan ahead and make it in the over to see the difference. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Great! I used 12 pcs. of 1" thick bread so I increased the eggs to 3 and kept the milk quantity as stated. It was not soggy at all. In error I mixed the white sugar and cinnamon into the egg mixture before hand instead of just prior to baking - this worked out fine. Very easy and very tasty recipe.
