This cinnamon



For the French Toast Bake:

  • 1 loaf of crusty white bread – brioche, french bread, and challah will all work (we used Canyon Heritage for gluten-free!)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (may substitute full-fat coconut milk for gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream (may substitute full-fat coconut milk)
  • Cinnamon, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place the bread in a 9×13 inch baking dish, separating slightly so it leans diagonally*. Then, in a large bowl whisk together the eggs, cream, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla, and pour it over the bread.
  3. Note: you can prepare the french toast bake the night before! Assemble per step #2 and then bake as directed below.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. While the french toast is baking, make the icing in a medium-sized bowl by whisking together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream.
  6. Remove the french toast from the oven, then pour over the glaze. Garnish with additional cinnamon and serve!


For a more bread pudding-style texture, simply lay the slices flat in a 9×13 inch baking dish, letting them overlap.
