Christmas in the Summer? This Peach Pie French Toast Casserole can be prepared overnight and just popped in the oven in the morning. It’s a good recipe to serve to a crowd or brunch!
Christmas is finally here! The holiday season is yet upon us. And you know what I am doing about it? I am shoveling slices of this Lemon Almond Loaf Cake while baking another Hot Chocolate Habanero Bundt Cake and these yummy Nutella-Filled Chocolate Baileys cookies.
Speaking of Christmas, Christmas morning is a lovely time with family over great food, lots of laughter, and joyfulness. Add to that the excitement of tearing into the present after present – it is a real treat!
This Peach Pie French Toast Casserole stays on top of my brunch list. It’s an easy breakfast idea that involves little preparation but gives the best flavors.
About Little Northern Bakehouse Loaf
I am using this Cinnamon & Raisin Loaf from Little Northern Bakehouse. What I like the most about this brand is their dedication to making healthier, gluten-free bread without sacrificing the taste or texture with a line-up of plant-based, non-GMO products.
If you are struggling to find delicious and creative ways to enjoy gluten-free bread, then French toast is the perfect option for you! Gluten-free bread usually is denser than traditional wheat bread, meaning the egg and milksop will be nicely absorbed. Don’t forget to allow the bread to soak for long enough that the bread is thoroughly moistened.
Many wheat breads end up sloppy, saggy, and soggy because they are airy and light, but gluten-free bread will not let you down, even if you don’t normally eat it.
Thanks to Little Northern Bakehouse, you can choose from multigrain, white, or cinnamon raisin gluten-free bread when making your French toast.
Bonus: you can make this recipe using slices of apples to replace the peach filling for Apple Cinnamon French Toast.
