Pinned It, Made It: Baked French Toast

I recently tried this recipe.

1 loaf sourdough bread (1.5 pound loaf)
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 T vanilla

For Topping

1/2 cup flour
1/2  brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t salt
1 stick cold butter, cut into pieces

Grease a 9x13 pan with butter. Tear or cut bread into chunks and place evenly in the pan.  Mix eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and pour over bread.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  Make topping at this time.  Mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and cut in butter to make a crumb mixture.  Store this in the frig overnight. 
Preheat oven to 350* and add crumb topping to bread mixture.   Bake for 1 hour. 

I am not a huge fan of french toast but I liked this.  I love that I am able to mix it up the night before and just throw it into the oven the next morning.

It is a nice treat on a busy Sunday morning!

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
