BETH’S GINGERBREAD BAKED FRENCH TOAST
serves 12-14

Ingredients:
1 ½ loaves of Challah bread or brioche bread
12 eggs
2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream
1 cup (240 ml) milk
1/3 cup (65 g) sugar
3 tbsp (45 ml) molasses
1 tbsp (15 ml) ground ginger
1 tbsp (15 ml) ground cinnamon
1 tsp (5 ml) allspice
1 tsp (5 ml) cloves
½ tsp (2.5 ml) ground nutmeg
2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla extract
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
1 tsp (5 ml) powdered sugar for garnishing

Orange Raisin Cinnamon Syrup:
1 cup (240 ml) pure maple syrup
4-5 pieces of orange peel created with a potato peeler
2 tablespoon (30 ml) raisins
1 cinnamon stick

Method:
Spray a 13 x 9 Pyrex casserole dish well with baking spray, set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs until combined. Add cream, milk, sugar and molasses, whisk to combine. Add spices and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Slice Challah bread down the middle, vertically, then cut across horizontally, to create manageable slices.

Pour egg batter into the casserole dish and then dunk bread, on both sides in the egg batter to coat on both sides. Begin lining bread upright, against one end of the dish, completing the process until all slices are coated and lined upright in the casserole dish. Wipe edges of dish clean with a paper towel. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F (176C) and bake for 30 mins uncovered, then cover and bake for another 25-30 mins until all the liquid is set and bread is baked through.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan combine all the ingredients for the syrup, simmer for 10 mins until warmed through and fragrant. Transfer syrup to a gravy boat for serving.

Once French toast is done, allow to cool slightly, dust with the powdered sugar and place the dish in your basket cozy.

Bring to the table with the gravy boat, cut into squares and top with the orange raisin syrup.

  1. Well, I was going to make scones for Christmas. Guess not! This looks fabulous and the infused maple syrup throws it out of the water. Thanks for another great recipe! Merry Christmas!

  2. This recipe looks scrumptious, Beth! Question: if we were to use ground cinnamon in the syrup instead of a cinnamon stick, would that be ok? And if so, what amount (1/2 tsp)?

  3. Beth!!!! This is awesome! I love the presentacion. I think that the flavour of this french toast is so yummy. I love this recipe with all of those spices.

    Have a happy day my friend!

    Patricia.

  4. Thank you this is what im making for our Christmas breakfast and you and your family and loved ones have a very merry Jesus Christmas and God bless

  5. Love my most recent basket in my December Box delivery. I notice you have a Sel De Guerande salt container, where may I find the same container. Thank you and Happy New Year.

  6. Beth, I emailed you on the back end of your channel, I wasn't sure if you got it because I assume you receive 1000's of emails daily…. this is unjust and you need to look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYhGu1W8iGc the "Food Wishes Chanel" by this "chef John" I was a subscriber and fan of this chef until I noticed that he visually plagiarized your recipe for lobster Thermidor. It's not right I just wanted you to know. I don't know if you're aware but he is claiming that it is "his take", and it is exactly your steps and ingredients. I just want to let you know.

  7. Omg this looks amazing! For me I will be a perfect winter Sunday morning breakfast ❤️ or even a five o’clock snack after a long walk!

  8. I have to make this! P.S. I used my basket as part of my charcuterie display it was beautiful! I have a request…do you mind filming a real live dinner party? Perhaps what you cooked for it, the table setting, and decor? It would be lovely!
