Baked French Toast


10 slices of bread (use your homemade if you can!)
1 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs
¼ cup honey
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

Grease a 9 x 13 pan with butter. In a large bowl, mix all the above ingredients together, except for the bread and cinnamon. Lay out 5 slices of bread in the greased pan. I put 4 slices down, 2x2, then cut the 5th slice in half and put it on the end.

Pour one-half of the egg mixture on top of the bread, then sprinkle some cinnamon on top of that. Put the other 5 slices of bread on top of the other bread (as explained above), pour the rest of the egg mixture on top of that, then sprinkle with more cinnamon. Cover the baking pan with plastic wrap and put it into the refrigerator until morning. The egg mixture will soak into the bread over night.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the plastic wrap from the pan, and bake it for 40-50 minutes or until the egg is cooked.

Serve with real butter and 100% pure maple syrup (or homemade maple syrup). We also like it with some cold applesauce on top.
