A decent base but not good at all.... I tried it 1st following directions it was soggy / burnt & didn't even look edible. I tried it again half milk half cream, 1/2 a teaspoon all spice, 1/2 nutmeg, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 cup brown sugar & 1 teaspoon vanilla extract then baked 375 for about 25-35 mins middle of the oven. It came out so much better :) But thanks for the base recipe didn't need much syrup either just some fresh caramel sauce & banana slices...
I tried this recipe because I forgot to start my usual overnight French toast last night. So I quickly searched an oven-baked French toast and found this one. I skimmed through the other reviews first and I read a lot that it was a bit bland. So I used this recipe as a base but added more to it. Instead of just milk, I used 3/4 C of half & half and 1/4 C of milk. I added a dash of nutmeg for more flavor. And I added 1/2 C of maple syrup to the mixture for more flavor. I didn't even see the part about adding powdered sugar to the mix, so I didn't. When I tried to soften the butter in the microwave, it ended up melting which was fine. I just used a spoon to pour the melted butter over the bread and it worked out well. I buttered the bread first then dipped it in the mixture. We used Texas Toast. It only covered about 8 pieces of bread for us but that's fine because we aren't a big family. I didn't bother moving the oven racks. And I didn't use a cookie sheet because that's dumb, and you'll end up with black bread. Instead, I used a glass baking dish and sprayed it with nonstick spray before adding the bread. I had some left over butter so I poured it over the top of the bread after it was all set. I did follow the directions and baked it at 425 degrees but it took a little longer than 15 minutes. I just watched it carefully until it turned golden brown. Good base recipe! But definitely needs to be tweaked to your own taste. And don't use metal cookie sheets. Use a baking dish and spray it first.
