Overnight Caramel French Toast from Cooking Light

Overnight Caramel French Toast

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • cooking spray
  • 10 slices French bread
  • 2 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan.  Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly, stirring constantly.  Pour mixture evenly into a 13x9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange bread slices in a single layer over syrup in dish.
  3. Combine milk and next 4 ingredients (through eggs) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.  Pour egg mixture over bread slices.  Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.  
  4. Preheat oven to 350.  Combine 2 T. sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle evenly over bread.  Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until golden.  Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Wow- this was truly awesome!  And it's really "light"?  I wouldn't have guessed it!  I guess there are 314 calories and 7 grams fat per serving, but it doesn't say what a serving is.  I guess you're the judge on that!  The kids loved having this treat before school.  It sets up really nicely and is so  tasty....try it!  And use French bread and not regular bread!
