This warm, sweet cinnamon roll casserole is a great twist on French toast, kind of like a French toast casserole and custard mixed. We have it every Christmas morning. Serve with whipped cream and either blackberry or strawberry preserves.

  • Mix milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl and pour over bread. Let sit for 8 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place casserole dish inside a larger pan; pour water into the outside pan, making sure not to get water into the casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, about 50 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use margarine instead of butter, if you prefer.

It was good. I used some apple cinnamon bread we had been given for Christmas that I had frozen and it turned out well. I will use it again. Read More

I made 2 batches of this exactly as written, one cinnamon and the other pumpkin spice swirl bread. 3 out of 4 people likes it and all had complaints of it being a bit soggy. If I make this again, I will experiment with the cooking method. Read More
