This is wonderful. I made it for Mothers Day Brunch 2 years ago and my Dad has requested it ever since. It is one of my favorite recipes.
When I baked this in a convection oven for 25 mins at 375, I found the top dry & the bottom too moist & runny. To correct this, I cut the bread slices in half, turned them over & broiled for 10 minutes. The result was perfect - and there were no leftovers.
Great French toast! I actually used Texas toast to make this, instead of the French bread, but it worked out just fine. DH and I agreed that this was rich and wonderful. Don't even think of putting syrup on this stuff! Only the top of this toast will become "toasty". I've submitted a photo...hope it looks as good as it tastes.
Mmmmmmm, Mmmmmmm Good!
Loved the flavor of this. The only problem was the caramel. Most of the caramel had gotten hard and extremely sticky, rip your teeth out sticky. It seems the caramel in the middle of the pan was perfect but all around the edges it was hard and stuck to the pan. My 9 yr old devoured it though. I might try again and maybe thin out the caramel a little more. I loved the idea of dipping the bread vs just pouring it on. I did not use up all the egg, maybe that was the problem with caramel but the bread had a perfect texture. It wasn't mushy like other overnight toasts. I did use pecans and they were wonderful. I am going to try again because the taste was wonderful.
I doubled the recipe, and it turned out wonderful. The perfect, make ahead dish, for Christmas morning. I am not much of a "sweet" eater when it comes to breakfast, but this was too delicious to pass up. Wonderful, thanks.
This was sooo goood!! My dad and I devoured these!! Very easy to make, and very very delicious! Will be making these often :)
Not nearly as good as I thought it would be. Leave it in the oven not long enough and the bread is soggy, not brown or crusty. Leave it in the oven to long and the caramel turns to rock but the bread is nicely toasted. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
Just what I needed to stop the cravings I had for something sweet. Perfect!!Thanks for posting.
