Overnight Baked Blueberry French Toast is the perfect thing to wake up to. Filled with sweet blueberries and topped with a sweet lemon frosting!
Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I hope everyone had a nice Christmas holiday. I wanted to share this Overnight Baked Blueberry French Toast with everyone. It's one of our family's favorites, especially during the holidays. It's easily put together the night before and then it sits in the fridge until the next morning. While you are busy entertaining guests or just lounging in bed, you can pop it in the oven. Once it's done baking, all you need to do is top it off with a delicious lemon frosting and you are good to go.
Overnight Baked Blueberry French Toast
If you haven’t ever had an overnight French toast, it’s pretty easy. It consists of all of the normal things you would use to make French toast:
- Bread (I like to use a sweet rich bread like challah or brioche)
- Half and half
- Cinnamon and Salt
- and Blueberries of course!
I like to cut up the bread the morning before and let it sit out. That way it has time to dry out, which makes it better to soak up the egg mixture and it also prevents sogginess. Then, that night, I put the bread in a buttered baking dish with the blueberries. Next, I mix together the eggs, half and half, cinnamon and salt and pour it over the bread and blueberries. Make sure you mash down the bread so all of the pieces get a chance to soak up the egg mixture. Cover the dish in plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, take out the dish while you preheat the oven, make the streusel and drop it on top. Then, bake it till it's browned on the top and not jiggly in the middle. Lastly, make your icing, drizzle and serve!Print
Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2020 has great things in store for all of you!
