A Make Ahead Brunch: Pan Dolce French Toast Bake

Written by Nick

Pan Dulce French Toast Bake

I love classic French Toast. Growing up it was always a special treat to have French Toast, but my dad would be stuck in the kitchen while we were eating. The idea of a French Toast bake is new to me. It wasn’t until I had a friend’s Overnight French Toast that I even thought of making this type of dish.  So, when I saw this Pan Dulce French Toast Bake, I knew it was something I had to try.

The recipe was simple and it keeps you out of the kitchen and with your friends and family. It would be a great dish for Easter brunch or whenever you might have friends or family for brunch. The toast was crispy at the top and had a cake like consistency in the middle. The coffee and cinnamon combination was perfect, giving it almost a coffee cake taste. It was so flavorful, you don’t even need to add syrup (although it’s quite delicious with NESTLÉ LA LECHERA Dulce de Leche if you want a decadent treat).

If you’re new to the French Toast Bake, try this one out. You’ll be glad you did!
