Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 16-20
  • 1 loaf bread, cut or ripped into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 eggs
  • 2½ cups milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9x13 pan and put the bread pieces in the pan.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Pour mixture over the bread pieces. Using your hand or a fork, toss until bread is evenly covered with the egg mixture.
  5. For the topping, in a small bowl mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut the butter in with a fork, a pastry cutter or your hand. Mix until crumbly and all combined.
  6. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly all over the top of the bread.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. (For softer French toast, bake 45 minutes. For a firmer and crispier edge, bake for at least 60 minutes, maybe even a little more.)
  8. Serve warm with a favorite syrup or a dusting of powdered sugar.
