Baked Strawberry French Toast
Fresh strawberries and cream bring rich flavor to this baked strawberry French toast that’s easily made ahead, chilled overnight, and baked in the morning for brunch or breakfast.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Grease or spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Slice the bread into 16 slices using a sharp knife.

Save the ends to use in another dish or discard.

Arrange the bread slices in the prepared baking pan.

Tuck strawberry slices between and around the bread.

Whisk eggs milk cream sugar lemon zest almond extract and salt together until well combined.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread slices.

Press down on the top of the bread to help the egg absorb; it’s okay if a little is in the bottom of the pan.

Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes.
