Pecan pie French toast from the oven

Must Try

You have French toast and you have unusual-tasty French toast. These pecan pie French toast according to the recipe of blogger Baker By Nature at least prove that. With all the flavors of pecan pie , but then stuffed into a French toast. Try resisting that.


For 4 persons:

For the French toast:

  • A small, firm white bread, e.g. boule de beurre
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 180 ml whole milk
  • 180 ml cream

For the caramel with pecans:

  • 100 grams pecan nuts, chopped
  • 180 grams brown sugar
  • 85 grams of butter
  • 100 grams of golden syrup
  • 100 grams maple syrup

Note: these French toast require little effort, but they do require soaking for at least six hours in the custard-like mixture. If you’re smart, put them in the bowl the night before and put the bowl covered in the fridge. The next morning all you have to do is make the easy caramel and pop it in the oven.

Two more tips: go for a hearty white bread, such as boule beurre . Since you’ll be soaking the bread for a few hours, you don’t want it to fall apart (like casino bread or tiger bread probably would).

You should also check whether you have a suitable oven dish at home. This is important, because you place the bread slices all with one side in the caramel. In the original recipe, they use an elongated one; we used two square oven dishes and divided everything between them.

This is how you make these pecan pie French toast

Cut the white bread into thick slices.

Mix the eggs, egg yolks, milk, cream and vanilla extract in a large bowl with a whisk. The eggs should be well beaten.

Arrange the slices of bread side by side in the baking dish. Pour the cream mixture over it and make sure the bread is well covered. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for six hours to overnight.

Ready to bake? Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.

Now make the pecan pie caramel. It’s very easy: melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat once the butter has melted. Stir in the sugar, maple syrup, golden syrup and chopped pecans. Set aside for a moment.

Meanwhile, remove the unbaked French toast from the oven dish. Do this carefully: they will be very soft!

Wash the baking dish (unless you have another one of course) and make sure it is dry. Divide the pecan pie caramel over the bottom and carefully place the French toast on top, so that they are all covered with one side in the caramel.

Place the dish in the oven for about 35 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Carefully turn the French toast and place on a plate, caramel side up.

You can keep them in the fridge for up to three days.
