Cinnamon French Toast Casserole is the breakfast casserole of your dreams! Just put it in the oven for less than an hour and you’ll have a moist, rich casserole to start off your morning on a sweet note! Eating Cinnamon French Toast Casserole is like having dessert for breakfast, and it’s totally socially acceptable.
IngredientsFor the casserole: • 1 pound loaf sourdough or french bread • 8 large eggs • 2 cups of 2% or whole milk • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream • 1/2 cup granulated sugar • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon For the topping: • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed • 2 teaspoon cinnamon • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
Lightly grease a casserole dish or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Slice the bread into 1-2 inch cubes, and distribute it along the bottom of the dish.
In a mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the eggs with milk, cream, sugars, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread in the casserole dish. It is important that all of the bread is wet.
Cover the casserole dish and allow it to rest in the fridge for at least 6 hours or, ideally, overnight.
To make the topping, combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter until a crumble begins to form. This should resemble a streusel.
Once you are ready to bake the casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Evenly distribute the streusel topping over the casserole.
If you desire a moist consistency, bake for 45 minutes. If you desire a firm casserole with less moisture, bake for 1 hour.
Remove the casserole from the oven and serve warm.
