Overnight French Toast with Caramel Syrup

Overnight French Toast with Caramel Syrup

I had the pleasure of tasting gourmet french toast with caramel syrup at a little french restaurant called L'Atelier Cafe in Palm Springs California.   I had never tasted caramel syrup before, and let me tell you, I was asking a lot of questions after tasting it for the first time. I found this "Overnight French Toast with Caramel Syrup" recipe online and it tastes just like the special treat I had in Palm Springs.  The caramel syrup is over the top delicious!


French Toast:

1 loaf (thick-sliced) French, baguette or cinnamon bread
8 eggs
3 cups milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter
Powdered sugar

Caramel Syrup:

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup light corn syrup


Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Place the bread slices flat in the baking dish.

Mix all ingredients, reserving the butter and pour over the bread.

Cut butter into pieces and dot over the top.

Refrigerate over night or a least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake 45 to 50 minutes.

Sprinkle powdered sugar over french toast.

Caramel Syrup Directions:

Whisk together all ingredients over medium heat in a 2 quart saucepan until sugar is dissolved and mixture is warmed through.  Some separation is normal during cooling. Stir before pouring if necessary.
