This make-ahead recipe is fantastic for a special holiday, or anytime! It’s pictured here with Sweet Potato Pecan Butter and a drizzle of real Maple Syrup. The recipe originated with my friend, Judee Holder in Sandy, Utah!
Makes: 12- 3/4” slices of French bread
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup Half and Half
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbl maple syrup
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Powdered sugar for dusting
Topping of your choice (I like our Sweet Potato Pecan Butter)
Combine all ingredients for the soaking mixture and pour in a buttered 9” x 13” shallow baking pan. Place bread slices in the pan, turning once or twice to allow the bread to soak up the mixture. Cover the pan and place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, turn the slices again, and place the pan in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Turn the slices again, and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and dust with powdered sugar (optional) and serve with your favorite syrup, or fruit compote.
Your French Toast should be crispy and golden brown- delicious!
