Gluten Free Dairy Free French Toast Bake

January 13, 2015

This batch of decadence was my hubby’s request for Christmas morning breakfast.  It was a recipe somebody shared on Facebook (and I’m sorry, I have no idea WHOSE the original recipe was!) that he asked me to convert to something we could both eat.  Not a small order with the whole gluten AND dairy free restrictions.  But I took it on and the results were, frankly, nothing short of spectacular.  The whole family LOVED this.   I don’t actually like normal French toast, but I really enjoyed this.  We had it with some fresh sausage from the butcher shop and bacon (because that’s how we roll).  This recipe is for a half batch (9×9 pan).  If you’re feeding a crowd, double everything and use a 9×13.

1/4 cup melted Earth Balance
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 loaf of thickly sliced gluten free dairy free bread
2 eggs
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other neutral dairy free milk)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Cinnamon for sprinkling
maple syrup
1. Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar….stir till mixed.
2. Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9×9 pan….spread around.
3. Beat eggs, milk, & vanilla
4. Lay single slices of bread in pan
5. Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on bread layer
6. Sprinkle some cinnamon over bread/eggs
7. Add 2nd layer of sliced bread
8. Spoon on remaining egg mixture
9. Cover & chill in fridge overnight
10. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes (covered for the first 30 minutes)
11. Sprinkle with powdered sugar & cinnamon
12. Serve with warm maple syrup
