Clearly we didn't roll it tightly enough! That was ok though!!! I got a wonderful idea! I had been craving french toast all week, so I decided to turn this into a French Toast Bake! It was super easy and a wonderful way to start Saturday!!
If you are a "planner", you can very easily prepare this the night before, leave it in the fridge and bake it in the morning. :)
I would also recommend adding blueberries to this, but since I have a few little ones that don't like blueberries as much as I do, I simply serve them on the side.
If you prefer to sweeten this up a little, you can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of maple syrup to the egg mixture.
This recipe made a perfect amount for 5 people, but can easily be doubled.
To make Cinnamon French Toast Bake you will need:
- 1/2 loaf Whole Wheat Cinnamon Bread
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1.5 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg (I use freshly grated)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Real Maple Syrup (optional)
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, until firm to the touch. Serve with fresh fruit and real maple syrup, if desired!
