Share A Spoon - Overnight Caramel French Toast

Think Tank Momma

I know this site needs work.  TRUST ME, I know.  I will be working on it.  The new improved Blogger editor and templates SUCK.  It's really difficult to manipulate and I really am LESS than impressed.  I'm not a cookie cutter kind of blog design kind of gal.  Need something with a little flair and I will get there, just going to take much longer than I originally thought.

Anyway, welcome to Momma B's kitchen.  This is a blog for me to post recipes I receive for Share a Spoon, and I will post other recipes I come up with over here as well.  Thursdays will specifically be for Share a Spoon though.


I cut and pasted the emailed recipe I received this week.  Haven't tried this yet, but trust me....I AM GOING TO STAT!

It is obscenely good and is a favorite Christmas morning and really handy because it is a do ahead.

Overnight Caramel French Toast

1 ½ Cups Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Butter

½ Cup Corn Syrup

8-10 slices 1.5 inch thick bread (either Texas Toast or French Bread)

4 eggs

2 ½ Cups whole milk

1 TBSP vanilla

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp nutmeg (or to taste)

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Combine Brown Sugar, butter and corn Syrup in a heavy, medium sized saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until bubbly and thickened. Pour mix evenly over bottom of 9X13X2 baking dish. Arrange bread slices close together over caramel sauce. Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, salt and nutmeg and pour over the bread slices. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight. In the morning combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the bread. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until puffed and firm in the centre. Serves 8-10.

A person can only eat about one slice each as it is very sweet and rich.
