Years and years ago when I was watching Good Things Utah, Kneader's came on and made french toast. I copied the recipe down...but I didn't know if I would ever make it because I wasn't a french toast fan. Remember, I don't like soggy bread?!? Fast forward until about a year ago. My friends have raved about Kneader's french toast. Since that is one of our favorite spots to go to for breakfast, I finally dared to try it. Oh. My. Gosh. It was so good. So I pulled out the old recipe and decided to make it for my family. They were all big fans too! Hope you like the recipe as much as we did!
1-2 loaves of Kneaders Chunky Cinnamon Bread (cut into 8 slices)
(if you don't have a Kneader's by you, use any sort of cinnamon bread)
3 cups milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
Butter baking dish generously. Slice bread. Whisk together eggs, milk, brown sugar, salt and vanilla. Dip each piece of bread into the mixture (the recipe calls for you to actually pour the mixture over the top of the bread when it is in the dish, but I was worried that it would make the bread super soggy). Cut butter into pieces and place a piece over each slice of bread. Refrigerate for an hour. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
Kneader's Caramel Syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup heavy cream
Whisk ingredients together and heat on the stove until smooth.
Serve french toast with syrup, whipped cream and berries.
