Specialty Recipe

Baked French Toast

One of the secrets to this fantastic dish is that it is prepared the night before! After baking, the French toast puffs up and the crunchy topping melts around and down and between the slices. I usually use walnuts in the topping however, if someone is not fond of walnuts, pecans do very well.

1 baguette French bread, cut in 1-inch slices
6 large eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup light cream or half & half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
Maple Syrup

Butter 9-inch square baking pan. Arrange bread slices, overlapping to fill pan completely. In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg; mix well. Pour over bread slices; cover and refrigerate overnight.

Next day: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small bowl, combine butter, sugar, walnuts or pecans, and corn syrup; mix well. Evenly spread over bread. Bake 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

Serves: 6 to 8; delicious cold too!
