It was so easy to throw together the night before. In the morning I threw the topping on and let it bubble away in the oven. So good!
This is easy, delicious and a crowd pleaser.
Notice I didn't say low fat.
Pioneer Woman's Baked French Toast
1 loaf sourdough bread
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
For the topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter, cut into pieces
Grease 9 x 13-inch baking pan with butter. Tear bread into chunks (or cut into cubes) and evenly distribute in the pan.
Mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator overnight.
The next morning, in a separate bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add butter pieces and cut into the dry mixture until mixture is all crumbly.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle the topping over the french toast. Bake for 1 hour.
Scoop out individual portions. Top with butter and drizzle with maple syrup.
