French Toast Casserole
  • 1 large french baguette cut into one inch cubes
  • 7 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Crumb Topping
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Other Ingredients
  • Maple syrup for serving
  1. Butter a 9x13 dish and evenly distribute cubed bread; set aside
  2. Crack the eggs into a large bowl, add sugar then whisk. Add milk, vanilla and cinnamon and whisk until everything in incorporated.
  3. Pour custard evenly over the bread. Gently press on the bread to make sure all the custard is absorbed into the bread - you may think you don't have enough custard, but you do.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  5. When you're ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Prepare the crumb topping by placing all the ingredients except for the nuts into a bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until course crumbs form. Mix in chopped nuts. Sprinkle crumb topping over the bread and bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.
This recipe can be made the night before. Crumb topping can also be made ahead of time, just keep in refrigerator overnight.
