Spice up your breakfast time with this Overnight Gingerbread French Toast recipe. Here’s how to make it:
Grease a 9 × 12 inch deep baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in two rows, overlapping each other.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, black pepper and salt.
Pour mixture evenly over the bread, gently pressing the slices down to soak up the liquid. Cover with cling film and refrigerate until ready to bake.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/175˚/350°F. Sprinkle with pecans, cranberries and Billington’s Gingerbread for extra texture and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. If bread begins to brown too quickly, cover the top with foil and continue baking.
Serve warm with a dusting of icing sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.
