To make it a real treat, serve this gooey, delicious french toast casserole with a warm, homemade peach maple compote and a dollop of homemade whipped cream!
How to Make Overnight Peaches and Cream French Toast Casserole
Start off with a loaf of brioche bread – it’s thick and buttery and makes the best french toast! Cut it into cubes and add it to a greased baking dish. The bread should almost fill the dish, leaving just a little room at the top for the topping.
Next, blend together ripe, juicy peaches, eggs, milk, vanilla and salt. This is what will transform that delicious brioche into decadent french toast! Pour the mixture over the bread to soak. Cover the casserole dish and put it in the refrigerator overnight. This gives the bread time to soak up the creamy egg mixture and transform it into a gooey french toast casserole that is to die for!
In the morning preheat the oven while you make the crumb topping. The topping is just flour, brown sugar and softened butter. Combine those 3 ingredients together to make a crumble and then sprinkle it all over the top of the casserole. Put the casserole in the oven to bake for about 35 minutes.
While the french toast is baking you can quickly whip up the 2 toppings – Peach Maple Compote and Homemade Whipped Cream. Once the french toast is done let it rest for 5-10 minutes and then serve it warm with both toppings!
