As the coffee brews and the bacon sizzles, this French toast bakes peacefully in the oven. Moreover, it can be assembled the night before you plan to serve it. And, you may use any jam or preserves you like. Apricot preserves or marmalade make delicious alternatives to the raspberry preserves.
For the French Toast:
1 1/4 cups raspberry preserves
Ten 4-by-4-by-1-inch-thick slices egg bread
1 1/4 cups whole milk
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
3 large egg yolks
3 large eggs
For the Almond Syrup:
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
4 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Confectioners' sugar
Baked French Toast with Raspberry Preserves and Toasted Almonds Recipe at
Butter 13 by 10-inch baking dish. Spread preserves evenly over 1 side of each bread slice. Cut slices diagonally in half, forming triangles. Arrange triangles crosswise in dish, preserves side up and overlapping slightly. Whisk milk and next 4 ingredients in large bowl. Pour custard over bread. Let bread stand 1 hour, basting occasionally, or cover and refrigerate overnight.

Mix first 3 ingredients in small bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let stand at least 1 hour.

DO-AHEAD TIP: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake French toast, uncovered, until puffed and golden brown, about 50 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds and confectioners' sugar; serve with almond syrup.

Why, why, why???
It floors me that people give negative reviews without even trying the recipe OR because they are not familiar with an ingredient! IF a nutrition label doesn't SUIT YOU, DON'T make it! Try something else instead. If you don't know what egg bread is, google it, for crying out loud. Some of us actually like to see real feedback, modifications, etc... of a recipe.
