Fabulous recipe in taste & soo easy to prepare. I used frozen BB cuz they were cheaper. I added cinnamon to the egg mixture as did other reviwers. Left out the nuts cus I didn't have any. I Cooked it for about 40 minutes, but middle peices could've been a little more done. The smell was devine while baking, when I removed it from the oven the bread was so puffy, it was beautiful. We both enjoyed this dish & it will be repeated in our home. Thanks for posting.
Delicious. I used a French baguette because I couldn't find French bread. The slices were much smaller so I fit about 25 small slices in the 9x13 pan. Next time I'll try to find French bread, but the baguette worked fine. I added about 1/3 tsp of cinnamon to the egg mixture. I left out the pecans. I only let my bread sit for 6 hours and I turned the bread slices over after 3 hours so that both sides of the bread could soak in the egg mixture. I used frozen blueberries because they were cheaper than fresh blueberries and they worked fine so I'll use frozen next time too. I'll definitely make this again sometime. Thanks for sharing!
I made this for Christmas morning. Really loved it. I like the addition of the blueberries and pecans. I will definitely make this again! Super easy. Thank you so much.
Really tasty. I tried this but couldn't eat too much due to the carb content. I changed the cooking method by letting my bread soak during the day, then topping it with the caramel sauce and cooking overnight in the crock pot. The caramel sauce soaked into the bread and while this didn't crisp up on top like I'm sure it does in the oven, I was able to serve this for breakfast on a busy school day. I'll make this again but will add cream cheese to the bread mixture before cooking.
this is very good, however I would definitely omit the 3/4 c sugar and use only the 1/4 c with the butter to drizzle. I use croissants cut in half.
This recipe got an enthusiastic "You can make this again!" from the DH who was craving french toast. And the best part is that it took me all of 5 minutes last night to throw this together using buttermilk bread and adding a bit of cinnamon with the nutmeg. Then I was able to sit and enjoy my morning coffee with the hubby while it baked and the wonderful aroma wafted in from the kitchen! Thanks Munchkin Mama!
What a wonderful recipe!! Made it this weekend for a scrapbooking crop and everyone raved about it. I used Apple Danish bread and used two layers of bread. Flipped the bread over before adding the fruit and nuts to make sure all the bread was evenly moist. Used more blueberries than called for and it was heavenly!!
I've made this a few times - sometimes skipping the nuts and/or blueberries depending on the tastes of those eating it - but each time it was delicious. And so easy to make.
Wonderful - perfect for a morning brunch! I had 2 layers of bread, so added a bit more milk and eggs to compensate. The pecans added a perfect touch. We served it with whipped cream on top, mmm! Thanks!
I made this for New Year's Day brunch - it was pretty and delicious. Lots of flavor for such a simple recipe. How nice to simply pop it in the oven after a late night!
