Favourite Caramel French Toast
Our best french toast recipe. Overnight caramel french toast with pecans. Prep the night before and it's ready to pop in the oven in the morning.
light corn syrup
or maple syrup
Combine sugar, butter, and corn syrup with a pinch of salt in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly.
Pour syrup mixture into a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with chopped pecans (we like to add some whole pecans as well, upside down so they'll be right-side up when served).
Place 6 slices of bread on top of syrup mixture. Top with remaining 6 slices of bread with pecans if desired.
Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt, stirring until blended. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread slices.
Cover and chill 8 hours. Bake, uncovered, at 350℉ (180℃). for 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
When serving, flip the slices over so the caramel is on top (as pictured).
