    This morning I thought I would whip up a treat, baked french toast. I usually just pan fry it, but the recipe for the baked one sounded delicious! You melted butter in a dish with brown sugar. Top with your bread slices, then pour the egg/milk mixture on top. Make in oven for about 45 minutes, then voila! Sadly, this was a big flop for me. The brown sugar stuck to my teeth like it had caramelized or something. The french toast was just disgusting. Any ideas on what went wrong? Maybe some tips or a recipe that is no fail?

    Oh my gosh, that brown sugar really did a number on my glass pan! I could not seem to wash it out. It has been soaking, and I just now got it clean. I think I am going to stick to my usual pan frying French toast. I have never had something turn out this bad before! :) Well, I guess it is a lesson learned.

    I have no idea, but thank you for posting this. I never did think of that, but I should have. I'm not a fan of brown sugar in the oven unless it's well incorporated in the recipe. I had a similar recipe saved for when my mother visits, I think I'll find something else.

    I've heard of baked french toast and strayed away from it. I would rather just "fry" mine on the stove with a little coconut oil.

    You have to remember that sugar can burn pretty easily. It doesn't sound like you "burned it" but made it into a hard gooey like in product.
