Raspberry-Cinnamon French Toast

This is a guest favorite!! Each time I serve it I get asked for the recipe. You can just as easily substitute blueberries or blackberries for the raspberries.

  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar, divided

  1. Place bread cubes in a greased 13-in x 9-in x 2-in baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, ¾ brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Pour over bread.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
