Overnight French Toast

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sarah Chana

I found this in a recent issue of Binah Magazine, and, while I haven't made it yet, it looks like a great make-ahead for a busy family morning, or for a celebratory brunch. I did not include the overnight time in the refrigerator in the time estimates for making this recipe.

This worked really well, and was exactly what I wanted. I chose this recipe because it is relatively plain, and would get its added flavour from the assortment of sauces, jams, fruits and whipped cream I planned to serve on the side for our Mother's Day brunch. The egg bread puffed when baking, but deflated after being taken from the oven. I think that the sweetness was just right, and I loved the suble taste of maple syrup.

  1. Spread butter over the bottom of a large baking sheet with 1" high sides (like a jelly roll pan). Arrange bread slices on the pan.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients, whisking well.
  3. Pour evenly over the bread slices. Turn the slices to coat both sides.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°F Remove plastic wrap and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Turn slices over and bake until golden brown, about another 5 minutes.
