This morning was so special! I was very blessed to have hosted a birthday breakfast for my dear friend and neighbor, Beverly. She invited several of her closest friends and, we had a SUPER time laughing, sharing and, most of all, celebrating the “birthday girl”. I prepared a simple and yummy French toast recipe, and, I am excited to share the recipe with you!
I prepared CARAMEL FRENCH TOAST. This is one of my favorite things to fix for a special occasion breakfast. This recipe has been a tradition in my home since I was a newlywed. You will usually always have these ingredients on hand and, this dish presents in a “fancy” way….fun to serve to your guests.
Simply Combine the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan and cook for 5 minutes until bubbly. Pour syrup into a 9 x 13 glass Pyrex dish. Arrange French bread slices over the syrup and, then, pour the egg mixture slowly over the top of the bread. Refrigerate overnight, or, for 8 hours. DONE!
- 1½ cups firmly packed brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter, unsalted
- ¼ cup corn syrup (Karo)
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup half-n-half
- 1½ cups whole milk
- ¼ t. salt
- 10 (1½ inches thick) slices French bread (soft bread, not hard)
- 4 T. sugar
- 1½ t. cinnamon
- ¼ cup butter, unsalted
- Combine sugar, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly. Pour syrup evenly into a lightly greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Arrange bread slices over syrup. Combine eggs, milks, vanilla and salt; stir well. Gradually pour over bread slices. Cover and chill at least 8 hours (or overnight). When ready to bake, combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the soaked bread. Drizzle with the remaining butter. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve right away.
This recipe is perfect for a weekend breakfast. Thrill your family this weekend and serve up this divine dish. I truly hope you will add this recipe to your celebrations.
