Now on to making this fantastic and easy cinnamon roll french toast:

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. 

Then, take your french bread and slice it into ½ inch slices. Depending on the size of your bread you may need two loaves to have enough to do two layers. 

Place slices of the french bread on the bottom of the greased 9×13 baking dish to create the first layer.

Then, in a medium-sized bowl, you need to combine the eggs, whole milk, vanilla, and ½ tablespoon of cinnamon, and nutmeg together until everything is well combined. 

Now, pour half of the egg and cinnamon mixture over top of the layer of french bread. 

Using the remaining french bread, make another layer of the bread slices over top of the first layer of bread. 

Then, pour the rest of the egg and cinnamon mix over the second layer of french bread.

Lastly, you are going to sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon and sugar over the top of the second layer of bread. 

Now just place the pan in the oven and bake it at 350 for about 25 minutes or until it looks like all of the egg mixture has been absorbed by the bread.

Pull the pan from the oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes to cool. Then, using a spoon or spatula, spread the cream cheese frosting over top. 

Now, serve it up and enjoy it!

    Wouldn't this be good if you sliced the French bread lengthwise in 3 and mixed cream cheese with confectioners sugar spread this over each slice, sprinkled this with cinnamon sugar and than poured the egg mix over top of the whole loaf and baked? In my house I'm the only cream cheese lover so it would be a waste for me to attempt a whole loaf but it does sound yummy!
  2. This recipe is delicious! I used sourdough instead of French bread simply because my grocery store was out of French bread and it was still wonderful! I also opted to make homemade cream cheese frosting because I like to avoid trans fat and it's almost always found in canned frosting. But overall this recipe was incredible and will become a brunch staple of mine!

    I made this recipe and used one layer. It seemed like it didn't have enough liquid. Usually it's like 1/2 milk and 1 cup cream. Maybe next time I'll use bread instead of french bread. I wonder if a brioche bread would work too. I think I'm going to try this again but use more milk.
