Baked French Toast
By Mary McDougall
This is a breakfast that you prepare the night before, refrigerate overnight, and then just pop into the oven in the morning. The toast is moist throughout with a slight crispness on top. Serve with warmed maple syrup, or a fruit topping (see hints below).
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 40 min
1 Arrange the bread slices in the bottom of two 9 x 13 inch baking dishes. Do not overlap the slices. Place the remaining ingredients in a blender jar and process briefly. Pour over the bread slices in both dishes. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
2 In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove cover and bake for about 40 minutes until slightly crisp on the top, but still moist throughout.
Hint: This is an easy way to make French toast for a crowd without standing over the griddle in the morning. To make a simple fruit sauce, thaw an unopened package of raspberries (or another favorite fruit) overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, place in a blender jar, add a small amount of agave nectar (a tablespoon or two) and process until smooth.
