How to make Overnight French Toast
Be sure to the bottom for the full recipe
In a baking dish, arrange bread in a flat layer. Then, in a large bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. In another large bowl, whisk eggs with milk, sugar and vanilla, then pour over the bread. Lay the sliced peaches on the bread and sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon mix.
Refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Remove 30 mins before cooking. In a pot heat your cream, the drizzle over the peaches. Then bake the casserole for about 50 mins.
Let stand for 10 mins and serve.

Overnight French toast
I love that this is a recipe you can pretty much make the night before. Perfect for the night owls like me. Prep the recipe, let it sit in the fridge overnight (absorbing all of the delicious flavor), wake up at whatever time you see fit, and bake to perfection. Not a bad deal at all!
Can I freeze it?
Yes! It’s a great dish for holidays and if you are going to be elbow deep in other tasks, you can make this days in advance. Prepare the entire French toast bake in advance, and store it in the freezer. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator and rewarm it in the oven just before serving.
- You can use peaches in water or syrup. Just make sure they are drained fully.
- To Store. Place leftovers in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- To Reheat. Gently rewarm French toast in the oven at 350 degrees F until hot.
- Serve with cool whip, homemade whipped cream is divine too.
