Raisin French Toast

Raisin French Toast

This recipe is an adaptation of the one Abby grew up loving. Bob (Abby’s dad) used to make trays of this on cold winter mornings. Now we make it on Sunday mornings after we’ve done chores as a second breakfast. We use the entire loaf, aiming for enough leftovers to make Monday mornings a bit more bearable!

Raisin French Toast


  • 3 tbsp cinnamon

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
