Janice's Berry Baked French Toast


I couldn't have a blog on my website without a few solid breakfast options, because, HELLOOOO BRUNCH IS THE BEST MEAL OF THE DAY!

This is my favourite go-to for hosting brunch and so far it seems to be a crowd pleaser! I love it because a) it brings back warm feelings of women's breakfasts at church in good company  b) you make it the night before so in the morning all you have to do is put it in the oven, and c) like I said before, I've yet to meet anyone who didn't like it.

1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 melted butter
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
12 slices french bread (white texas toast is my favourite)
1 1/2 cups of berries (I love a mix of raspberry and blueberry best)

1. Mix together 1st 3 ingredients.
2. In a separate bowl, beat or whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt.
3. In a 9 x 13 pan layer the following:
 -1/3 brown sugar mix
 - 6 pieces bread
 - 1/3 brown sugar mix
 - berries
 -6 pieces bread
 -1/3 brown sugar mix
4. Pour the egg mixture over the top of the entire pan, trying to ensure everything gets a damp.
5. Let sit on the counter for 2 hours or put in the fridge over night.
6. Press down lightly before putting in oven
7. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Serve with fresh whipping cream, breakfast sausages or bacon, and hot coffee!  YUM!

Let me know if you try it out and how it turns out for you :)
