Diva Tasting: French Toast Casserole…

Maple Glazed French Toast Casserole


1 Loaf Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Cut Into 1-Inch Cubes

1 Cup Raisins (Optional)

10 Large Eggs

3 Cups Half n Half ®

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

1 ½ Teaspoons Vanilla Extract


1 Cup Powdered Sugar

¼ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup

2 Tablespoons Half n Half ®


Step 1 Spray a 9 X 13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Step 2 Spread half of the bread cubes onto the bottom of the 9x 13 pan. Sprinkle with half of the raisins if using . Cover with remaining bread cubes. Sprinkle remaining raisins on top if using.

Step 3 Mix eggs, 3 cups milk, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, white sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until ingredients are well blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over bread mixture in pan.

Step 4 Gently press down bread so it is slightly covered by the liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight.

Step 5 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Step 6 Remove plastic and cover pan with foil and place in the oven. Bake uncovered until set and top is golden brown, about 50-55 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to brown.

Step 7 GLAZE: Whisk powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon milk together in a bowl. If too thick, add a bit more milk. Glaze should be thick but liquid enough to drizzle.

Step 8 Drizzle glaze over warm casserole. Allow glaze to thicken and set before serving, about 10 minutes.
