Peach Cobbler French Toast Bake

French toast bakes are my jam on weekends when I want to make brunch ahead. The custard soaks into the bread all night to really flavor everything well and I don’t have to do anything more complicated than turning on the oven in the morning. That’s a good thing because until I have a big cup of coffee I can’t really do complicated things. This time I made a summery, gorgeous French toast casserole inspired by one of my favorite summer desserts! This peach cobbler French toast casserole is the ultimate decadent brunch with buttery brioche as the base and an amazing brown butter crumb topping.

Let me tell you, brioche is really the best for any French toast. It is already slightly sweet and so dense and buttery. I cubed up a whole loaf of it.
The custard I made was classic with lots of eggs, heavy cream, spices and vanilla. It was the glue for the whole dish.
After the assembled French toast bake sat overnight, I quickly made a simple crumb to go on top in the morning. It was a slight change from my usual desire to not have to make anything in the morning but trust me it was worth it. It only took 5 minutes!
That yummy crumb topping went all over the top of the French toast bake and it was time to go in the oven. It took about 45 minutes for it to bake to perfection. The custard set beautifully and the crumb was gorgeously golden.

I cut it into 8 squares and served it immediately! Oh my goodness, this mashup of French toast and peach cobbler was pure heaven. That crumb on top just made it. Dessert for breakfast is always acceptable, especially when it’s in French toast form right? Hope you all love it. xoxo

Ingredients
FOR THE PEACH COBBLER FRENCH TOAST
  • 1 loaf brioche bread about 14 ounces. Diced into chunks
  • 4 whole peaches pitted and thinly sliced
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
FOR THE CRUMB TOPPING
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Take a 9 x 13 baking dish and grease it really well with butter or cooking spray. Add the chunks of brioche to the tray and press it lightly into an even layer. Then evenly arrange the peach slices on top of the bread. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla together until smooth. Pour it over the bread and peaches and lightly press everything down so it all gets glued together by the custard. Cover it and refrigerate it for at least an hour or up to overnight.

  2. When you are ready to bake it, pre-heat the oven to 350. Then make the crumb topping. Put the butter in a small pot and heat it over medium heat. Let it gently melt and sizzle until it becomes nutty and slightly brown. Stir the brown butter with the brown sugar and flour until it becomes a moist crumb. Sprinkle it all over the top of the casserole, then bake it for 45 minutes or so, until the custard is set and the crumb is golden. Let it cool for a minute or so when it's done, then serve immediately! Enjoy!
