This Stuffed French Toast is an overnight recipe that allows us more time to spend with guests! It is excellent with fruit compote or with extra warmed syrup on the side.

12 to 16 slices raisin or cinnamon bread
1/2 to 3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk or heavy cream
1/2 cup maple syrup
confectioners' sugar


Grease or spray a 13x9-inch casserole dish (glass works best). Arrange a layer of bread slices on the bottom of the dish, covering completely. Spread each slice with a generous layer of cream cheese. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle over the cream cheese. Top with the same arrangement of bread slices.

In a  bowl, mix eggs, milk, and maple syrup, then pour over the bread. If bread floats, push down to immerse in liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Bake uncovered in a 350˚F oven until golden and puffy, about 45 minutes. To serve, cut through bread slices diagonally, creating triangles and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
