French Toast Bake

It probably shouldn't be me blogging about this, since Giz is the one that made this delicious French Toast Bake recipe.  But, I guess being the one who took the pictures...and the one who ate most of it puts me in a good position to talk about it.

At first, I was skeptical.  I like my french toast made with challah, soaked in a healthy amount of milk and egg just before pan frying (results in a french toast that is on the softer side) and with syrup on top.

French Toast Bake

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf Texas toast (we used challah)
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
1. Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar….stir till mixed.
2. Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9 x 13 pan….spread around
3. Beat eggs, milk, & vanilla
4. Lay single layer of Texas Toast in pan
5. Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on bread layer
6. Add 2nd layer of Texas Toast
7. Spoon on remaining egg mixture
8. Cover & chill in fridge overnight
9. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar

11. Serve with warm maple syrup

Delicious! We found that the top layer wasn't as coated with the flavouring as the bottom.  So, eating it upside down may be the way to go in the future.  I also quite liked the leftovers cold (but maybe I'm strange that way).  Of course, one of the biggest pros of this recipe is that you make it in advance, which is great for when you have company.
