This french toast recipe makes amazingly delicious custard-like texture french toast with a perfectly spiced caramel sauce. It was so good, my kids begged me to make another pan for the next morning!
1 loaf french bread, cut into thick slices
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
1 stick butter, melted
2 cups milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Spray an 11×17 pan (important!) with cooking spray or butter it well!
Mix brown sugar and butter until smooth, pour on bottom of prepared pan.
Arrange the slices of bread in the pan.
Mix eggs, milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg together, beat well – pour over the bread.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. By morning, all of the spiced milk/egg mixture will be completely absorbed and your dish will look like this:
Preheat oven 350F
(Uncover before baking) Bake for 30 min, serve! Yum!
This recipe serves 6-8 easily. Recipe can be doubled.
To scale it down for a family of 4, use a 9×13 pan with as many slices of bread as you can fit), about 1/2 a loaf.
