Baked French Toast



  • 3 Eggs; beaten
  • 2/3 cup Milk
  • 2/3 cup Half and Half
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 4-8 slices Loaf French Bread; cut diagonally 1 in. thick
  • Topping :
  • 1/2 cup Butter; melted
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans


1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream and vanilla.  Dip bread slices into egg mixture, turning to coat.  Place slices in a lightly greased 9x13 (or smaller if only 4 slices) baking pan.  Refrigerate overnight.


2. The next morning preheat oven to 350 degrees F


3. In a small bowl, combine butter, sugar, maple syrup and pecans.  Spoon mixture over bread.


4. Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.


** I regularly adjust this from 4 to 8 servings.  If you want only 4 you can cut the topping in half.  If you want more than 8 servings, increase the egg, milk and cream mixture accordingly as well as the amount of topping. **
