I had a brunch this past weekend and wanted to cook up something delicious, and easy! This recipe will not disappoint, it was a crowd favorite!
I used Trader Joe’s French Brioche bread and it was so incredible! You can also use different types of breads, like ciabatta or whole wheat. I loved how the flakey brioche bread made the french toast even sweeter! If you are a fan of sweet over savory for breakfast, this is the BEST recipe!
Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes and lay into a 9×13 inch greased pan (I used coconut oil spray). The fact that you can make this recipe the night before makes it so convenient! Take it out of the fridge in the morning and into the oven and you have yourself a delicious breakfast!
Mix together milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon before adding mixture to the bread. I was worried that it was going to be too much liquid, but a good portion of it gets soaked into the bread overnight. Make sure to evenly coat the bread when pouring the mixture into the pan.
Mix together melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup and drizzle over bread. Cover the pan with tin foil and place in fridge overnight.
After baking at 350 degrees for 35 minutes covered, and an additional 10-15 minutes uncovered cut and serve! I love fresh berries with my french toast, but you could also serve it with bacon!
