Overnight Caramel French Toast

This is the BEST breakfast recipe I've ever made!!  Today is my daughter's 13th birthday.  I usually make a special meal for them.  She chose this.  I got this recipe from my sister in law Heather at Christmas time.  I use more bread than the recipe calls for to fill up the 11 x 14 pan.  I use 7 eggs instead of 6.


1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
12 slices whole wheat bread (it holds together better than white)
(I used 17 pieces of bread)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon; divided
6 eggs beaten
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking dish (I use 11 x 14 pan)

Bring brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil.  Remove from heat; pour into baking dish.  Top with remaining bread.

Beat eggs, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon; pour over bread.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove dish from refrigerator; preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake 30-35 minutes.

Makes 4-6 servings (with more bread you feed close to 8 people)

The finished product!!  OOOO so gooey!!

Oh my, this looks fantastic. I'll definitely have to give it a try. I love breakfast that you can make the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning.

Stopping by from Black Kats Design where you became my 100th follower. Whoo hooo!

I am definitely going to try this! I have made a similar recipe, but without the syrup and you tear/cube the bread. I think this looks simpler though.

and I think I have the same pan too! ;-)
