Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bake
I love Sunday mornings, we get together with friends and enjoy each other’s company and yummy breakfast goodies. The kids always have pancakes, which is why we now affectionately call Sunday morning, Pancake Sunday. I am in charge of the adults and I love making new things for everyone to try.
I recently made my Apple Caramel French Toast Bake, and while this is pretty similar, the difference is definitely noticeable and delicious! I used cinnamon raisin bread, for that baked in cinnamon taste…and I love raisins 🙂 I also increased the amount of vanilla for that extra touch of sweetness.
You can easily prep this meal the morning you are going to make it, but I L-O-V-E prepping breakfast the night before. It makes the morning so much more relaxed and enjoyable, so that is how I prepped this Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bake, as an overnight bake.
Now, here is my Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bake Recipe. Be sure to Print It and Pin It so that you can make it again and again.
- 6 eggs - I used Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread
- 3 tablespoons butter
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 24 oz. sliced apples, peeled - I used 2 bags of Crunch Pak Sweet Peeled Apples
- Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in a large bowl
- Rip (or cut) the bread into small pieces, about 2 in x 2 in, and drop the pieces into the bowl with the egg mixture. Set the bowl aside.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan and add apples and brown sugar
- Cook on medium heat until apples are slightly softened.
- Pour the bread/egg mixture into a 9x13 pan or similar baking dish.
- Top with the apple mixture
- Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Bake covered for 40 minutes
- Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until bread is firm.
I hope you enjoy this Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Overnight Bake as much as we do! It is best enjoyed with friends and family!
