Every Saturday night I go to bed thinking about making Sunday brunch a special little family get-together. At the same time I want the recipe to be simple and easy so that I don’t get so exhausted making it that I can’t enjoy my time with my family.
This very easy recipe for baked French toast uses very few ingredients but adds some extra oomph to Sunday Brunch. I don’t have to stand stirring things on stovetop…and I get perfect French toasts with crispy outside and soft inside.

For Baked French Toast :

4 large or 6 medium slices of white bread
3 eggs
4 tablespoons soft brown sugar plus more for sprinkling
1/2 cup cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons butter

This Is What You Do :

Cut bread slices in triangles or rectangle halves. Place them, slighly overlapping or in a double layer in an oven proof, greased dish of 8×10 inches.
Beat eggs in a bowl, add sugar, cream, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat all ingredients together till mixture is frothy.
Pour over slices to cover them completely. Cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or more conveniently, leave overnight.
Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Dot the bread with butter, sprinkle brown sugar over it. Bake for 45 minutes or till a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean and the surface turns golden brown. Serve straight from oven with your favourite fruit jam ,whipped cream,maple syrup, chocolate syrup or honey.
