Oven-baked French toast takes the beloved breakfast dish to a whole new level! It tastes just like the good old French toast that you make laboriously on the stove, one slice at a time – but with this variation, everyone gets to eat a hot breakfast together. It’s also a great idea for a holiday brunch or when you decide to stay home with impromptu guests.

Have fun with the flavours! This version has blueberries and cardamom, but you could also choose cranberries and orange, or mixed berries with vanilla.  All yummy choices!

Steps

  1. Arrange bread slices in the dish, overlapping slightly.

  2. Beat eggs in a big bowl with eggs, milk, blueberries, honey and cardamom. Let mixture rest for 5 minutes. Pour over bread. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  3. Place rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Butter an oven-proof dish (23 cm x 33 cm or 9 in. x 13 in.).

  4. Mix all topping ingredients in a medium bowl. Spread topping over bread and bake for 40 minutes.

  5. Drizzle with maple syrup at serving time.
