French Toast Bake
This is another great recipe that I got from Pinterest. I was really excited to try this recipe. We love french toast, but I do hate having to make only a few at a time and then not everyone gets it hot. This is a great alternative. It does really taste like french toast and it is super easy to make. I will definitely be making this again.
Here are some tips about this french toast bake
- We are not super sweet people for the morning this is average sweetness. However, if you would like to make it sweeter ( you may especially want it sweeter if you don't use maple syrup) try these additions; add powdered sugar to the batter, sprinkle brown or regular sugar in between the layers along with the cinnamon.
- You do not have to use Texas Toast bread. Any bread will do. The reason for Texas Toast is because they are big and thick pieces. You probably would not like to use a small, thin type of bread. You can make it look prettier by taking the crusts off. I tried this at first but found it way too time consuming, plus Nick and I both actually thought it tasted better with the crusts as it tastes like toast, where the crust is extra crunchy then the rest of the bread.
- You can keep in the refrigerator and reheat the next day if you have leftovers.
