Peach French Toast

This is a dish that my mother-in-law made for the baby shower that we co-hosted last weekend. This French toast casserole was so good and I watched her make it the night before and witnessed that it wasn't hard to make. This would be perfect for Sundays when you are frantically trying to get everyone ready for church and still need to feed everyone breakfast! She got this recipe from one of her friends.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 large can sliced peaches (or about 4 fresh peaches)
  • 1 loaf fresh French bread, sliced 1-inch thick
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Cinnamon and sugar
In a saucepan, melt brown sugar and butter. When butter melts, add the water; return to burner and stir constantly until mixture foams, then pour into 9x13 baking dish. Let cool 10 minutes, then line dish with sliced peaches, then layer of French bread, and then remaining peaches. In blender, blend eggs, milk and vanilla. Pour carefully over peaches and bread, making sure all pieces are covered. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour (until golden). Use pan syrup to top, then top with whip cream if desired.
