My kids liked this too...which is always a bonus. Except for Mr. Two...who loves cinnamon toast, but only ate a couple of bites of this. He doesn't eat anything. It's starting to stress me out. But anyway, that's a post for another day. *sigh*
The original recipe is egg-free AND diary-free, found here (Yummy French Toast Casserole)
Egg Free French Toast Casserole
2 tablespoons soy margarine, melted (milk-free) *I used Smart Balance 50/50
1 cup vanilla-flavored soymilk *I used skim milk and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup dark molasses
1 (16 ounce) artisan bread (milk-free, egg-free) or 1 (16 ounce) French bread, cut into 1 inch cubes (milk-free, egg-free) *I used French Bread and it was 13 ounces
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (again)
Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray (note: do _NOT_ use butter-flavor cooking spray! This contains dairy ingredients). *I used regular Pam cooking spray
Combine melted margarine, vanilla
Fold bread into mixture so that it absorbs liquid evenly. Place in prepared baking dish, and cover with aluminum foil.
Bake 15 minutes.
Remove foil, and bake 15 minutes more.
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp cinnamon over the top.
Top as desired - allergen-safe syrup, fruit, or powdered sugar. *We used just a little sugar free maple syrup, but it is good by itself too.
This recipe goes in the "keeper" file! Next time I want to make it with wheat or 12 grain bread. I bet it would be good with walnuts or pecans too, if you don't have to worry about nut allergies.
Since this is a pretty easy thing to throw together, I'm going to link up with Think Tank Momma for Share a Spoon today! The theme is 'speedy'! She's looking for quick and easy meals...I hope there is lots of participation b/c with 3 kids
