Made this weekend at the lake and everyone loved it! We had a lot going on the night I made it, so I made a mistake, but I would make it again. I made the custard with the eggs, vanilla and whipping cream; but forgot the spices, sugar and salt. I realized my mistake the next morning before baking; I quickly mixed the ingredients and sprinkled on top before pouring the praline on top. Everyone loved the "crunchy" topping! Next time, I will add the spices to the custard AND sprinkle on top! Can't wait to make this again. Served will some syrup and berries - YUM!

My Suggestion if the complaint is "soggy," TOAST the French Bread first. Awesome recipe! Kudos Wildflour!

I got this same recipe years ago from a co-worker that brought it to our company pot luck breakfast. It is the best ever!!! I love how you can put it together Saturday night for an easy toss it in the oven and get ready for church easy sunday breakfast. Also got me looking for more different overnight French Toast recipes... If you think it is too soggy try adding more bread slices and deffinately avoid Bread pudding
