Oh how I wish you could smell this through the computer screen, because this my friends is fabulous!!! Ooey, gooey, sinful and delicious. Oh and it’s easy too. Seriously!
When Dempster’s announced a contest looking for recipes using their white bread I just knew I had to throw my Sassy and Sinful French toast into the ring. It’s a little down home comfort mixed with a little stolen yumminess from the last brunch at my sisters house. Ready!?
Ingredients for the Sassy French Toast Casserole Bake:
6 cups of Dempster’s White Bread-cubed
3/4 cup of 2 % milk
1 cup of whipping cream
1/2 cup of white sugar
3 ripe bananas
Dash of Cinnamon
Ingredients for the Sinful Topping:
1/2 cup of butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
Now it’s time to get your bake on!
-Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
-Generously grease an 8×8 glass dish with butter or margarine.
-Add the bread cubes.
-Slice the bananas and thoroughly mix in with the bread. Reserving one banana to layer across the top, then lightly sprinkle with cinnamon.
-Whisk whipping cream, milk, eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl.
-Pour over bread and bananas.
-Allow to set as you create your sinful topping. Melt the butter in a medium size sauce pan; add in the sugar and maple syrup. Cook for approximately 4 minutes on medium heat before stirring in the pecans.
-Top with approximately 1/2 of the Sinful Topping and put it in the oven for about 40-45 minutes until it is golden brown! Yum.
*Tip try and resist eating this topping straight out of the pot with a big old spoon. You will get burned, trust me on this one.
After you pull this scrumptious bake out of the oven you will want to let it sit for a few minutes before you slice and serve. Adding additional leftover sinful topping, optional. Serving with a side of fresh fruit and bacon, not really optional.
