Baked French Toast {Gluten-Free Version}

I recently posted about a gluten-free bread recipe I’ve been making that has been a big hit at our house. I’ve been so excited about finally being able to make good gluten-free bread that I obviously went a little overboard. I had a whole loaf that was in danger of going bad before we could consume it and since a loaf of good gluten-free bread is nothing to let go to waste…I had to find something to make with it….quick!

As luck would have it, I ran across this recipe for Baked French Toast at Rach’s Blog that sounded like just the ticket. Not only did it turn out to be delicious…it was very easy to put together! I will definitely be making this again.

Of course you don’t have to use gluten-free bread for this…just know it’s a very good option if you do.

Baked French Toast

  • 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 loaf Texas toast (or bread of your choice)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling on top

Note: The recipe calls for two layers of bread, but since I only had one loaf of GF bread, I made mine with just one layer. Next time I will try using an 8 x 8 pan instead of a 9 x 13.

Directions

Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar….stir until mixed.

Pour butter/sugar mix into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.

Beat eggs, milk & vanilla together.

Lay single layer of bread in pan.

Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on bread layer. Add a 2nd layer bread. Spoon on remaining egg mixture.

Mix cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle over the top.

Cover & chill in fridge overnight. (I refrigerated it for about 3 to 4 hours.)

Bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes, then uncovered for an additional 15 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup (optional).

I ended up making this dish in the morning and we had it that night for dinner. It was a definite crowd-pleaser! I mean what’s not to like about french toast that is crunchy on the top, soft and gooey in the middle and pure deliciousness on the bottom?! 🙂
