Cinnamon Apple and Blueberry Baked French Toast

February 5, 2018

I love baked french toast. You can prepare it the night before or the morning you want it. This one comes out especially fluffy and light, and the fruit is delicious.

You will need:

  • 1 loaf challah, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 large tart apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 c fresh blueberries
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 c milk
  • 1/2 c whipping cream
  • 1 c brown sugar, divided
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 c butter, cut into pieces

Then you will…

  1. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread, apple and blueberries.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, half cup of the brown sugar, vanilla, and 1 ½ t of the cinnamon.
  4. Pour over bread and stir to coat. Let rest for 15-20 minutes until the liquid is absorbed, stirring periodically.
  5. Spread the mixture in the prepared dish. If prepping the night before, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Bake for 35 minutes.
  8. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar with the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon, the flour and the nutmeg.
  9. Cut in the butter until crumbs form.
  10. Sprinkle the crumb topping on the French toast.
  11. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the topping is melty and golden.
