Maple Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

Plan ahead this needs to be refrigerated for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight. I tossed the bread cubes with a couple teaspoons of cinnamon before placing in the baking dish, but that is optional, if you prefer a less sweeter taste just omit the white sugar completely --- this is *very* good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the bread cubes in a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  2. In a bowl beat the softened cream cheese with sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and well combined.
  3. Add in eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.
  4. Add in milk, half and half cream, maple syrup and vanilla; beat until well combined.
  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the bread cubes in the baking dish, using a fork or spoon gently lift the cubes so that they coat evenly with the egg mixture.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8-24 hours.
  7. Next morning set oven to 375°F.
  8. Remove the dish from the fridge and let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  9. Bake uncovered for about 45-50 minutes or until set and a golden brown colour.
  10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple more maple syrup.
  11. Delicious!

This is a great recipe. I have made it a couple of times. I add lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, chopped walnuts, fresh apple chunks, and golden raisins. Light cream cheese and 2% milk works just fine. One of the reviews suggested adding the bread pieces to the egg/milk mixture and letting it soak a bit before moving it to the 9X13 pan. Worked GREAT!

It was delicious..... only slight change I made was last minute. Right before putting in the oven I melted 2 tablespoons of butter with a smidge of cinnamon and nutmeg an drizzled over the entire dish. My friends raved about this. Excellent recipe and super easy to follow.

This turned out better than I expected, but did make some changes from the original recipe. Instead of plain bread, I used cinnamon raison swirl bread. It gave it the punch of flavor that I think it needed. I also added a touch of nutmeg. It was great! I served it with real maple syrup. I would do this recipe again.
