Do you ever need to feed a crowd? It doesn’t happen a lot here, but sometimes I do host a brunch at home. And what’s the best way to be a great hostess? I’d say make these overnight oatmeal crumble French toast! It’s like dessert for breakfast ! And it won’t take too much of your time (nor money).
So this is basically a delicious baked French toast, with berries and some oatmeal crumble on top. It’s pretty amazing honestly. And the best part is that its pretty easy to make! Here’s how:
1 loaf white bread
1 cup milk
1 cup cream
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup frozen mix berries.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
Cut bread into cubes and place them in to a baking dish. Mix together eggs, milk, cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract, and pour over bread. Make sure there’s no dry bread spots, and that every little piece of bread is covered. Then sprinkle evenly frozen berries (I used a mix of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries). Cover with foil and let it soak overnight.
Now prepare your crumble:
Using your hands ( though you can also use a mixer) combine together the flour, brown sugar, oats cinnamon, salt and butter. Set aside (in a plastic container or ziplock) and let it chill overnight too.
In the morning, when you take it out of the fridge, simply scatter the crumble over it, and bake all together for around 40 minutes.
Serve hot or cold, it’s delicious in both forms!
You could also try making it with apples or pears on stead of berries, it would definitely be amazing as well!
