The most beneficial thing which I like in this french toast recipe is you don’t need to stand by the stove and pan fry each slice of french toast. Just put all the things into the dish and let the oven do its work for you. You also can assemble the casserole in the night and bake in the morning, which is good for time saving.

You will get all the delicious parts of french toast, but the amazing thing is with less effort. This is so soft, cinnamon infused, custardy middle, and an extra crunchy toasted topping with delicious taste and feelings. Try this tasty recipe in your kitchen and serve to your family.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F (190C). Place an oven rack in the center position.
  2. Slice the bread into 1-inch slices and then cut them into 1-inch cubes. You can also tear the bread apart with your hands. Leave the crusts on.
  3. Layer the bread and pecans in a baking dish: Lightly grease a 2-quart (if you want thicker slices) or 3-quart baking dish (if you want thinner slices) with cooking spray or butter. Add enough bread cubes to cover the bottom. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of pecans on top. Continue layering the bread chunks and pecans.
  4. Prepare and add the custard: In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together. Add the milk, sugar, orange zest, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and mix well. Pour the egg and milk mixture evenly over all the bread chunks. (I found it easier to pour the mixture into a large measuring cup with a spout first before pouring the mixture over the bread.) At this point, the casserole can be baked right away, or covered and refrigerated overnight.
  5. Drizzle with topping: In another bowl, mix the melted butter with the brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Using a spoon, drizzle the mixture evenly over all the bread chunks.
  6. Bake the casserole for 35 to 45 minutes. I baked mine for about 38 minutes. Leave the casserole in the oven longer if you want the chunks of bread on the top to be more brown and crunchier.
  7. Remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle dried cranberries and dust powdered sugar on top if you like. Serve with maple syrup at the table.
