Oven-baked French Toast Recipe
Warm French Toast for everyone at the table! These gingerbread French Toasts are perfect for Christmas breakfast with your family as you can bake them all at once.
- 3 large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp molasses
- 2 tbsp Nellie’s Free Range Unsalted Butter melted
- 1 cup milk
- 8 slices sandwich bread
- cooking oil spray
Position rack in the upper third of an oven and preheat to 375 F.
Generously spray the bottom and sides of a nonstick baking sheet (18” X 13”) with cooking oil spray. Set aside.
In a bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, salt, vanilla extract, and molasses. Mix in butter and milk.
Pour the mixture into the sheet pan. Place the bread slices to soak up the liquid and then flip in the order of how you placed the bread.
Bake for 10 minutes. Flip the toasts. Bake for another 9 minutes until the top is nicely browned. Keep an eye on them during the last few minutes.
Dust powdered sugar or drizzle maple syrup on top.
- Thick brioche or white bread works best for this recipe.
- If you don’t have molasses, you can substitute with honey or maple syrup.
- You can freeze leftover French Toasts! To reheat, air fry at 350°F for about 3 minutes. You can also bake in a single layer in a 375°F oven or air-fryer for 5~10 minutes until warm. Alternatively, microwave at 30 seconds intervals until hot.
