I love me some french toast. It's one of my favorite breakfasts. This recipe is such a wonderful, delicious and SIMPLE idea for breakfast! I love it. It's perfect for those times when you have a ton of company and no time or ideas for breakfast. You'll be sure to impress those guests with this one!
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 loaf french bread, cut into 1 inch slices
1 cup brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
1 cup milk
1/2 cup buttermilk (you can substitute with regular milk)
Melt butter and put at the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Wisk together eggs, both milks and vanilla in a separate bowl. Put a layer of sliced french toast over the butter in the baking dish. Sprinkle half of the sugar and cinnamon mixture over the bread. Put another layer of bread over the sugar mixture. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread. Sprinkle the remaining sugar and cinnamon over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning cover with tin foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake another 15-20 minutes until the top is browned and set. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve! It can also be served with syrup.
