Raspberry French Toast

I’ll admit it: I’m not really a breakfast person. I love breakfast food, but I’m usually so tired in the morning that I just make cereal or toast and yogurt for breakfast, and I don’t bother with anything fancy. On the weekends, though, we love having a leisurely breakfast with the whole family, and that’s when I get to try out delicious breakfast recipes.

I’ve been making baked cinnamon french toast for a few years now, and it’s always a hit with the family. This time I wanted to change things up, and came up with the idea for this delicious baked raspberry french toast. I think my family liked it even better than the original version!

As much as I love a good overnight French toast, I like that this recipe doesn’t require the same planning ahead. I mixed it up in less than ten minutes, and it was ready in about an hour. I love the contrast of the sweet bread and slightly tart raspberries.

How To Make Raspberry French Toast

  • Prepare – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray an 8″ x 8″ baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Assemble – Place half of the bread cubes into the baking dish.  Toss the raspberries with the flour and one tablespoon of sugar.  Sprinkle two-thirds of the raspberries over the bread cubes and then add the remaining bread cubes on top.  Top the additional bread cubes with the remaining raspberries.
  • Mix – In a mixing small bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla, half & half, milk, and 1/4 cup of sugar together.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread cubes.
  • Cook – Bake the raspberry french toast in the oven for 45 – 55 minutes.  Once it turns golden brown on top it’s ready to eat.
  • Serve – Serve with a batch of warm Buttermilk Syrup and enjoy!

Tips for Making Baked French Toast

  • Use a soft sandwich bread to more easily soak up all of the yummy sweet egg mixture.
  • Don’t worry about using frozen raspberries – they honestly work great!
  • Because I have a major sweet tooth, I poured maple syrup over my french toast, but you could definitely leave it out if you’re not as into sweets as I am. Either way, it’s a delicious and easy breakfast!
