todays low calorie treat (ha)

Baked French Toast

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup


Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup; heat until bubbling. Pour over bread and egg mixture.

Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

The texture of this is pretty loose. I think you could get by with less liquid if you wanted a firmer toast. I cook it a little longer too - that helps. It's not for everyone (Lisa B.) but that's ok. More for me!

I knew it was so good for me when I saw the half and half. Because half and half is diet cream, right?? :) It looks delicious!
