Baguette French Toast


Baguette french toast makes breakfast a special occasion. Custard-soaked baguette slices & crunchy topping make mornings feel special.



For the french toast:

  • 1 baguette, sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into thin slices


  1. Add slices of baguette to an 8×8 inch pan, arranging the slices side-by-side. It will be a tight fit.
  2. In a blender, combine eggs, milk, cream, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Blend until smooth and then pour over the baguette slices. Allow the milk mixture to soak into the bread slices for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  3. When ready to bake, set oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, add all topping ingredients. Combine with a pastry blender or your fingers, working the butter into the dry ingredients, until the butter is like small pebbles. Sprinkle the topping over the soaked baguettes and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the topping is browned. Serve with maple syrup.


  • The longer the baguette slices have to soak up the milk mixture, the better. This is what will give the french toast that custardy texture we all love.
