Overnight French Toast with Almond Streusel & Apricot Maple Syrup
What a great way to wake up! Our Overnight French Toast is sweet, flavorful and very easy to make. Simply assemble French toast the night before, then bake in the morning.
FOR THE FRENCH TOAST, WHISK—
FOR THE STREUSEL, COMBINE—
FOR THE SYRUP, SIMMER—
Stale baguettes are essential—they’ll soak up the custard without turning soggy. Cut them, then air-dry a few hours.
Coat a 9x13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with nonstick spray.
_For_ the French toast, whisk eggs, milk, half-and-half, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg for the French toast in a large bowl.
Toss baguette pieces in egg mixture and let stand 5 minutes to absorb some of the custard. Arrange baguette pieces in the prepared baking dish, flat side down. Pour residual custard over bread. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 375°.
_For_ the streusel, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, butter, sliced almonds, and almond extract in a bowl, then sprinkle over baguettes. Bake until topping is golden and bread is set, about 30 minutes.
_For_ the syrup, simmer preserves and syrup together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until preserves melt; stir in lemon juice. Serve warm with French toast.
Just before baking, prepare the streusel mixture and sprinkle evenly over the French toast.
