I seriously think this is the most delicious thing I’ve ever made.  I can’t say that for certain, but it is DEFINITELY the best french toast I’ve ever had.

This is an overnight recipe,  So you have to prepare it the night before – but in the morning all you have to do is wake up and put it in the oven –  it’s so perfect for a lazy sunday!


1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp corn syrup
1 loaf French bread cut into thick slices
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of cinnamon


In a saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stirring occasionally.

Pour the mixture onto a large, greased pan. Spread around to cover surface. Place your slices of bread in a single layer to cover the sauce on the pan.

Mix together eggs, cream, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Then just spoon or pour that mixture completely over each piece of bread.

Cover and refrigerate overnight!

The next morning when you wake up all you have to do is bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.

As soon as I took it out of the oven I flipped each piece, so it didn’t stick to the pan.

Then I served it with whipped cream and fresh berries and it was heaven in my mouth!

NOTES:  I put this in the fridge and heated it back up a few days later, and it was still just as delicious as the first time – It wasn’t even soggy!
