  • 1 -2 loaves french bread (depending on how big you get them. mine were pretty skinny so I used 2)
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnnamon
  • 1 cup cream cheese frosting, softened {you could use any frosting... we are just big fans of cream cheese}


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the french bread into 1/2 inch slices and place one layer in a greased 9x13 pan.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cracked eggs, whole milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.
  4. Pour 1/2 of the liquid mixture over the slices of bread.
  5. Place another layer of the sliced bread on top of the other bread. Pour the rest of the liquid mixture over the other slices of bread.
  6. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top and place in the preheated oven.
  7. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until all the mixture is absorbed and baked into the bread.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes then spoon melted cream cheese frosting on top.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!


You could make this the night before, cover it, and cook it for 30 minutes in the morning!

    Wouldn't this be good if you sliced the French bread lengthwise in 3 and mixed cream cheese with confectioners sugar spread this over each slice, sprinkled this with cinnamon sugar and than poured the egg mix over top of the whole loaf and baked? In my house I'm the only cream cheese lover so it would be a waste for me to attempt a whole loaf but it does sound yummy!
  2. This recipe is delicious! I used sourdough instead of French bread simply because my grocery store was out of French bread and it was still wonderful! I also opted to make homemade cream cheese frosting because I like to avoid trans fat and it's almost always found in canned frosting. But overall this recipe was incredible and will become a brunch staple of mine!
