- 1 loaf French bread (450g)
- 8 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (or granulated sugar)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Cinnamon Sugar:
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
Lightly grease a 9×9″ pan.
Cut or tear bread into 1″ cubes and place in pan — it will be full and that’s okay!
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over bread in pan, doing your best to evenly distribute the mixture over the bread.
Using a spatula, press the bread down into the liquid the best you can.
Cinnamon Sugar: In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over bread.
Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Cover (with foil or a lid) and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes. Remove cover and bake another 15-20 minutes until set in the middle and top is slightly crispy.
Glaze: stir together powdered sugar and milk and drizzle over French toast, or serve with syrup, fruit, whipped cream or yogurt as desired.
