Peaches and Cream Baked French Toast – peaches, cream cheese, French Bread and an egg mixture make this delicious seasonal breakfast a favorite everyone’s sure to love.
Whenever I make a baked French Toast I feel like I’m cheating.
I think it’s because it’s just SO easy to put together. You’ll prepare them the night before, put the crumb topping on in the morning and then stick it in the oven so it’s ready when everyone wakes up!
That is, if you’re up before everyone else.
If not, have someone else put it in the oven and you sleep in. I think I like that idea better.
The great thing about these baked French toast recipes is that they can be changed in so many ways. I’ve already got a few of them on the blog and will be coming up with others soon as well. The family loves taste testing them all and they get so excited when I make them because it’s one of our favorite breakfasts. I think I should put them all into an e-book, so they’re handy for you to access, Be on the look-out for it!

Spray an 9 X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Place half of the bread cubes into the prepared baking dish and evenly distribute half of the peach pieces and half of the cream cheese cubes.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and teaspoon cinnamon. Mix thoroughly.
Cut butter into small pieces and with a pastry cutter or two forks, blend butter into mixture until it resembles coarse meal.
Place mixture into a plastic bag. Seal and refrigerate overnight. This step can also be done in the morning before placing baking dish into the oven.
When ready to bake the next morning...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Uncover the baking dish and sprinkle the butter mixture evenly around the top.
Bake uncovered for 45 – 55 minutes. 45 minutes will give you a softer, slightly unfinished middle whereas 55 minutes will be firmer.
