Good morning sweetie! Guess whats for breakfast? No, not choco-crunchies, guess again. No, not left over pizza try aga…forget it. Its a wonderful concoction we call baked peach french toast. Smell it? Its almost done. Ummm, warm, slightly sweet with peaches and real maple syrup. Crunchy bites of nuts. Try it and write back to tell me if you loved it. I’ll be so excited to hear if you tried it.
- 1 loaf of french bread that you slice about 1″ think. I used less than a whole loaf.
- about 3 oz. cream cheese
- 1 29 oz. can sliced peaches, drained (or use sliced fresh ones if you want)
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts like walnuts maybe
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 3 eggs
- 2 Tblsp melted butter
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 400.
Spread cream cheese on both sides of bread. The first side is easy, but when you flip it over to do the other side, yikes! it wants to stick to the cutting board. I just used a mini spatula to lift it off and set in the pre-sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish.
Once the bread is cheesed up and set in the pan, poke holes in it with a fork, having a spoon handy to push the bread down if it tries to stick to the fork.
I like to dice up the peaches a bit, Slices were too big. So, put your peaches over the bread and top with nuts.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Pour over the bread.
Pop into the oven for about 25 minutes or until egg mixture is set and it looks, um, toasty?
(You can also cut the recipe in half and use an 8 x 8 pan. use 2 eggs and half the rest. You will have to eyeball half of 1/3 cup of syrup. Use the smaller can of peaches)
