Cinnamon Swirl Baked French Toast

4.38 8

This oven-baked French toast couldn’t be any easier.  This dish is best made the night before, so the bread soaks up all of the half and half mixture.  We love that it’s so customizable.  Instead of dried cranberries, try blueberries or your favorite berries.  Perfect for entertaining, whip it up the night before, then just pop into the oven in the morning and you have brunch or breakfast for a crowd.  Butter, maple syrup or a touch of whipped cream are the perfect finishing touches.

    Swirl Baked French Toast

    It has good flavor and was very easy to make but the texture was terrible. It came out really mushy, none of the kids touched it.

    The kids and I made this for Father's Day breakfast. It was really easy to make and tastes great! We didn't add any sugar, but it still turned out delicious. We will definitely be making this again!

    Swirl Baked French Toast

    It was a disappointment for everyone in my family. It was way too mushy for our tastes. We'll stick with our regular french toast.

    Swirl Baked French Toast

    I really did not like the texture of this dish at all. Although the top part of the casserole stayed crisp and had some substance, the inner part was very similar to custard style yogurt. The eggs used in the dish seemed to sort of set together as opposed to moistening the bread. Perhaps if I hadn't let it sit overnight my results would have been different, but as someone who is a fan of the textures of food this was really hard to eat.
