Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast can be prepped the night before and then all you have to do is bake it in the oven the next morning.
Because it soaks up all the delicious flavor all night long, every bite literally melts in your mouth.
I have also heard of Overnight French Toast being called “Company French Toast”.
It really is the perfect way to feed a lot of people in a short amount of time (as opposed to dipping each individual slice of bread and cooking it on a skillet).
This breakfast is perfect for brunch, Christmas morning, or even when you need a good family breakfast.
Ingredients needed for Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast Bake:
- brown sugar
- corn syrup
- thick-sliced bread (such as French bread – day-old bread works best for this recipe)
- half and half
How to make Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast Bake:
To make your creamy sauce that the bread will soak in overnight, you will bring butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup to a boil.
Spread the sticky sauce in the bottom of a large baking sheet (I used a jelly-roll pan that was 18″x13″x1″ – you want to make sure that it has at least a 1″ lip around the edges to keep the sauce from spilling out).
Place the day-old sliced bread in the pan on top of the sauce, making sure to not overlap the slices (you want them to be in a single layer).
Now mix together the eggs, cream, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon and then pour over the top of the slices of bread.
Cover the pan (I used plastic wrap) and place in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, uncover the pan and bake for about 30 minutes for French toast perfection!
You can top your French toast with syrup or fresh berries and cream – or it’s even delicious without any topping.
If you aren’t going to eat this French toast immediately, I recommend flipping each piece in the pan over, to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

- To get the perfect French toast, I recommend using day-old or stale bread. Sometimes I even cut my bread into slices and let it sit out for a day or two. If you use a fresh loaf of soft bread, you will end up with soggy slices of French toast. I like to use a loaf of French bread for this recipe, but I always make sure that its a day or two old.
- Many times in French toast, the ingredients call for milk. However, because this dish has more of a custard-like texture and flavor, I prefer using full-fat half-and-half. This will give it a rich flavor and each bite will literally melt in your mouth.
