Slumber Party French Toast
This French toast is a bit different from the usual kind. The bread is first dipped into a sweetened cinnamon-flavored batter, then set in refrigerator overnight to absorb the delicious flavors. The next morning, it's baked rather than fried. What a way to start the day with sleepover friends or your own family.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Liquid egg substitute equal to 2 eggs*
1/4 cup skim milk
6 1-inch-thick slices French bread
1 to 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
* I would use the 2 eggs
Place margarine in 13-by-9 inch baking pan or heat-proof baking dish.
Place pan on burner.
Turn heat to low.
Heat margarine until melted.
Place brown sugar in small bowl.
With fork, stir in cinnamon.
Sprinkle mixture evenly over melted margarine in baking pan or dish.
Combine egg substitute and milk in glass pie plate.
Mix with fork until blended.
With fingers or fork, dip bread slices into egg mixture to coat both sides.
Lay slices over sugar-cinnamon mixture in baking pan or dish.
Pour any remaining egg mixture over the bread slices.
Cover pan with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Remove pan from refrigerator 1 hour before baking.
Let stand on the kitchen counter to reach room temperature.
Preheat oven to 375º F.
Carefully place pan of French toast in hot oven.
Bake 25 minutes.
Using oven mitts, remove pan from oven to wire cooling rack.
With oven mitts, carefully remove foil from pan.
Return pan to hot oven.
Bake for 15 minutes longer.
Using oven mitts, remove pan to cooling rack.
Sprinkle French toast with powdered sugar.
Here's a terrific breakfast treat, but to make it you'll need to think ahead.
You need to start this recipe the day before you serve it, since it must be refrigerated overnight.
Use crusty loaves of French bread cut into slices.
Regular white bread slices won't work they're too soft and will get soggy.
Serves 6; 1 slice per serving
