Total cook time: 1 hour
Yield: 12 servings
½ cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 loaf Texas Toast fresh sliced bread (Not frozen)
4 large eggs
1½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablspoon light brown sugar, mixed with 2 teaspoon cinnamon
Real maple syrup, if desired
How to Prepare
Step 1: Place butter in a microwave bowl and microwave until melted. Add 1 cup brown sugar to the melted butter and stir until well combined. Pour this butter-sugar mix into a greased 9×13 inch baking pan, and spread evenly on the pan’s floor.
Step 2: Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla together until they’re well combined, then set aside
Step 3: Place a layer of Texas Toast over the butter filled baking pan. Spread a cup of the egg mixture evenly over the bread, then top with a layer of sprinkled brown sugar-cinnamon mix. Place a second layer of French Toast on the sprinkled cinnamon mix, and then repeat the process for eggs and sprinkled cinnamon mix.
Step 4: Cover the pan tightly and chill overnight in the fridge.
Step 5: When it’s breakfast time, bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes on the lower middle rack of the oven. The pan should be covered for the first 30 minutes of baking, and uncovered after that.
Step 6: Take out baked French Toast from the oven, allow to cool a bit, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. If desired, serve with pure maple syrup.
