    This method is a great way to make a lot at once and cook the French Toast more thoroughly rather than just browning them in a skillet. I have not used this method but I have the recipe ear marked in a Betty Crocker Buffet/Entertaining cookbook that has been one of my favorites throughout the years.

    I made this for breakfast today, and I must say-- You are brilliant! I used the Cinnabon bread, and it was amazing. I just love how it never became soggy, even after the syrup.

    I made this for breakfast this morning. I didn't put in the oven, but it was just as delicious! I'm happy to say that I froze the leftovers and I can't wait to have it again! Susanne

    I love French Toast and make it here a lot, but I will change to your recipe because the oven seems to be a better method!

    Excellent! I love the taste of french toast but rarely make it because it does go soggy. Definitely trying this! ^^5! :)

    Sounds good. Never baked them either. Always stopped at fried them. But they are seldom soggy until I load them up with maple syrup ;-) I guess drying them up first allows them to soak up more syrup. Yummm! I'll really be bouncing the walls!

    Baking them is a great step I will add when making my next batch of French toast.
    Great recipe!
