Easter Brunch Recipe- Baked French Toast

This is an easy recipe that I usually make Easter morning and it is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  This recipe is great, especially when you have company joining you, because all the prep work is done the night before.  I have shared this recipe with family and friends and they have all come back with rave reviews. Try to use a freshly baked french loaf, high quality maple syrup, and organic vanilla extract…it makes a huge difference in the flavors!  Serve it with mimosas…a nice dry Cava will pair the best with OJ and this dish.  Let me know what you think if you have a chance to make it!


  • 1 french loaf
  • ¼ stick of butter softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • A dash of cinnamon (to taste)


  • Cut bread into ¾ inch slices
  • Spread butter evenly on tops of bread,
  • Arrange in ungreased pan butter side up
  • Whisk all ingredients together
  • Pour the ingredients mixture over bread
  • Soak overnight (most if not all of the mixture will soak into the bread by morning)
  • Bake for 30-40min at 350 degree and serve with maple syrup on the side!
