Overnight Caramel French Toast

This French Toast can easily be made the night before in only 10 min. Then just pop it in the oven the next morning for a delicious breakfast!

Make ahead breakfasts are one of the best inventions ever. Nothing beats getting up in the morning and all the work for a delicious breakfast is all done! All you have to do is pop it in the oven!

This French toast recipe is one that I should’ve shared with you years ago. Seriously, I’m not sure what’s taken so long! I’ve made it countless times for my family, friends and company and the pan always gets scraped clean.

It’s so easy to make that I’ll often make this at the same time I’m cooking supper. It really only takes about 10 minutes to measure and beat the wet ingredients together and then layering the bread in a pan and that’s it!
