Who doesn’t like to indulge in a decadent breakfast every once in a while? You know, the kind that makes you feel like you might benefit from a post-breakfast nap? 😉 The only thing I don’t love about delicious homemade breakfasts is starting out my day by making a mess of my kitchen!

And that’s what makes the breakfast I’ll be sharing with you today so special! This delicious french toast is meant to be prepared the night before and refrigerated overnight. In the morning when it’s time for breakfast, all you have to do is bake it off! You and your family will be digging into stacks of deliciously gooey french toast in no time, with NO MESS to clean up afterwards! (Dreams really do come true!)

Overnight French Toast

Adapted from Kneaders

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf cinnamon bread*
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp butter, divided

*Note: The original recipe calls for Kneader’s Chunky Cinnamon bread, but feel free to use any loaf of cinnamon bread you can find. Great Harvest’s Cinnamon Chip bread would work well here!

Directions:

Use 1 tablespoon of butter to grease a 9×13” baking dish. If your cinnamon bread isn’t already sliced, cut it into 8 thick slices.

Line the bottom of the baking dish with the 6 middle slices of your cinnamon loaf. Cut the end slices into smaller pieces and use them to fill in any gaps. (If your cinnamon bread came pre-sliced into thinner slices, just double up or add another layer as needed.)

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour the mixture over the bread in your baking dish.

Cover the dish with plastic wrap or tin foil, and refrigerate overnight (or at least 4 hours.) Just before baking, cut the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter into small pieces. Sprinkle the butter pieces over the top of the soaked bread, then bake uncovered at 350°F for 40-45 minutes.
