Make ahead is key when it comes to brunch as you don’t want to be waking up at the crack of dawn to start cooking. This Ultimate French Toast recipe can not only be made the night before, but will have your guests begging for seconds. Ooey, gooey and so delicious. No need for maple syrup 🙂
I was first introduced to this recipe when my best friend Jodi brought it over to my potluck brunch. It smelled incredible and tasted even better. To me, it was a cross between cinnamon buns and french toast and I knew immediately I would have to have to make this again. Turns out the original recipe was from her cousin Lara’s friend’s mom and she told me to feel free to blog away (thanks Lara!). I tweaked the recipe a bit, but the taste is not compromised.
Think about walking into the kitchen an hour before brunch and simply popping the french toast into the oven the next morning, filling your house with the sweet aroma of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. How simple is that. Perfect for a special brunch (Mother’s Day or Christmas for example) or just a delicious breakfast with the family on a weekend morning.
I suggest serving the french toast with berries or vanilla yogurt.
