Don’t Tempt me

If there is one breakfast dish I could eat for the rest of my life, the Upside Down French Toast recipe would definitely suffice. Every time I go home it is such a treat to wake up to the luring aroma that fills the house with deliciousness. The first time my grandma made it, I wasn’t a fan. I only ate it because I wanted to be polite, but it soon became my favorite breakfast indulgence. My grandma has many awesome breakfast casserole dishes that are fast and easy but this is by far the best one. A couple of years ago, she became obsessed with the cookbook “Sleep On It” and let me tell you……, it is definitely a cookbook that every mom, grandma, student and daughter should own (buy here). Every recipe is prepared the night before, refrigerated and then ready to pop in the oven and bake in the morning. Good or bad mood this sweet, delectable dish is the key to my heart. Drizzle with maple syrup, sprinkle powdered sugar and top it off with some fresh strawberries and you are in for morning dessert! Mmmmmmmm……. Sweet, melt in your mouth, heavenly scrumptiousness, with every bite! Bon Appétit

Upside Down French Toast


1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
2 tbs. white corn syrup
French bread or white bread (crusts removed)
8 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups milk
Fresh fruit for garnish


  1. Combine the brow sugar, butter and corn syrup in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat. Stir until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Boil for 1-2 minutes, then pour into a 9x13 inch pan and coat bottom of pan with sauce.
  2. Arrange the bread in two layers over the caramel. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, vanilla and milk. Whisk to blend and pour over bread. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.
  3. The next day.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Bake the toast, uncovered, 40-60 mins.
  5. Serve with fresh fruit, syrup and powdered sugar.
  6. Kailani's Tip: Before putting it in the fridge weight down the bread with something (a book).
