I've been looking for an overnight french toast recipe for a long time. This is may be it! Easy to prepare - especially for overnight guests. Isn't soggy or overly sweet like some recipes and tastes great. I followed the recipe as printed except I sprinkled with cinnamon before baking. I like the idea of baking it in the pan it soaks overnight in. Will try that next time.
