Drunken Caramel French Toast

5 stars based on 22 votes

Part booze, part French toast, part bread pudding — how could you go wrong? In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you already had the recipe because such things (i.e., amazingly good, crowd pleasing, make-ahead, easy recipes) tend to get around. I got it from my friend Gayle, who got it from her friend, Lillian, who got it from…you get the idea :)

What makes it so good? Well, just consider what’s in it: golden caramel, buttery challah and custard spiked with Grand Marnier. Plus, it’s the ideal company-for-brunch dish because you assemble it the night before, let it sit in the fridge overnight, then just pop it in the oven when you’re ready to eat.

Right before it’s ready, it puffs up and forms a beautifully golden, cracked-in-the-center crust.

This dish is a showstopper, so bring it straight from the oven to the table, relish all the oohs and aahs, then spoon out generous portions.

Drunken Caramel French Toast

Servings: 6
Total Time: 1 Hour

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 large challah
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Pour into a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking dish.
  2. Cut bread into 1½" slices and remove crusts. Arrange bread slices on top of caramel, making sure entire base is well covered (you will use entire loaf).
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, Grand Marnier, orange zest and salt until well combined. Pour evenly over bread. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Bake, uncovered, in the middle of the oven until puffed and golden, 40-45 minutes. Let cool a few minutes (it will deflate), then serve immediately. The caramel hardens up as it cools in the pan, so it's important to serve hot.
  6. Note: I use plain ol’ supermarket challah (no need to buy anything fancy). If you want to play with the recipe, you could use a raisin challah or any other bread that you like.

    This recipe is amazing! It was extremely easy and straight forward to make, and I loved that I could do it all ahead of time, leading to very little clean up after serving it. I was originally concerned as my challah had gotten squished in the grocery bag, but it wound up being fine. Overall, the dish was a little on the sweet/rich side, but I loved it. Could even be served as a dessert bread pudding! Can’t wait to make this again!

    I did this again for guests over Thanksgiving weekend minus the alcohol and each time, it’s always a big hit.
    I used the Trader Joe’s challah rolls
    http://www.traderjoesfan.com/component/mtree/products/bakery/handbraided-challah and baked them in my http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/le-creuset-heritage-stoneware-rectangular-covered-casserole/?pkey=e%7Cle%2Bcreuset%7C145%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C24%7C%7C22&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH
    It was perfect.
    The bread I got was big enough to feed a crowd, sliced it thicker so it fits in the rectangular baker = perfection!!!

  • hi! making this on saturday, but I just want to confirm that an overnight soak won’t make it too soggy. My guests are coming at noon on saturday and I am afraid if i do this around 8pm the night before it will be. thoughts?

    - Casey on November 16, 2016 Reply
    • No Casey, It shouldn’t be soggy; the soaking allows the bread to fully absorb the egg mixture. Hope everyone enjoys!

  • Hi Jenn! I’m making your drunken caramel French toast for tomorrow’s Easter brunch. Your recipe says you make it the night before. Can I make it this morning or will it become too soggy in the refrigerator for that long? By the way, I have made so many of you recipes and everyone loves them! Your site is beautiful and so well organized. You make each recipe foolproof! Thank you!

  • Hi! I’m making the Drunken Caramel French Toast and the Spinach and Cheese Strata. Can the French Toast be baked at 325 like the strata? You mention that the reason for the lower temp is to add creaminess, so I don’t want to lose this. How much longer for the French Toast at 325? Thanks!

    I was looking for a recipe that would provide an alternative to the traditional French toast. This hit the mark. I made this for Christmas breakfast and it was a huge hit with everyone. I would definitely make this again, even if just for the hubby and I. I loved the flavor. I didn’t use the Grand Marnier, so I added in fresh orange juice. It added such a great flavor. Thumbs up!

    The whole family was at our home this Christmas. I was looking for something I could make ahead for breakfast on the day after Christmas. Made this and everyone LOVED it. Following suggestions, I served it with lots of bacon and a big bowl of creamy scrambled eggs. Will definitely make again.

  • This had all the makings of another excellent recipe from you.

    I baked in a glass pyrex dish and am wondering if this would cause the caramel to burn? The top was perfect but the bottom burnt and stuck to pan. Thanks for your input as I would like to try again,

    - cheryl on December 25, 2015 Reply
    • Sorry you had trouble, Cheryl. Happy to help troubleshoot – was the caramel actually burnt or just hard?

      - Jenn on December 25, 2015 Reply
      • Hi Jenn,

        Thanks so much for the quick reply. I would say it was both burnt and hard. We do want to try again as everything we have made here has been a consistent five star.

        - Cheryl on December 25, 2015 Reply
        • Cheryl, Next time try lowering the heat to 325°F and check for doneness at 35-40 minutes; also, be sure to serve hot while the caramel is still soft. Hope that solves the issue. Please let me know how it turns out if you try it again.

            Thank you so much for your suggestion! Doing that and adding two T of maple syrup as another person suggested resulted in perfection.

            - cheryl on April 1, 2016
      • to make sure the caramel didn’t set too hard I just added a Couple of tablespoons of real vermont maple Syrup to the caramel mixture before adding to the bottom of the dish. Seconds were no problem!!!

    I’ve made various forms of baked French toast over the years & none have wowed me until this one. It’s just the right combo of flavors & I would never have thought I would like the orange in it so much. The challah makes it just the right consistency (not too mushy ). This one is going in the table Christmas morning- thanks!

    Just loved it!

    And with all the prep done the night before makes for a real easy morning breakfast. One question though, as mentioned by a previous poster, once the caramel mixture cools a little it sets up real hard. Would there be a way to make the sauce so it would not harden.

    - Dave on December 10, 2015 Reply
    • There’s not really a different way to make the sauce to avoid that. I would just make sure to keep the dish warm while your serving. (Perhaps you could keep it covered and on the warm setting in your oven.)

    I’ve made this for the past couple of years at Christmas… it’s been a huge hit! I think the challah makes this perfect! I like to top servings with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. We usually make eggs and sausage to balance out the sweetness level.

  • Hi Jenn,
    My local store does not carry challah or brioche. Would an Italian loaf or Hawaiian loaf suffice? I could make a loaf of challah but would prefer a store bought loaf for this dish.

    - Mindy on October 27, 2015 Reply
    • Hi Mindy, Yes, either would be fine. Definitely no need to make a homemade loaf!

    • Hi Catherine, You could use Lyle’s Golden Syrup. Please lmk how it turns out :)

      - Jenn on October 9, 2015 Reply
    • I agree. I was distressed to see it listed. I found a substitution rule, though:

      “You can replace 1 cup of light corn syrup with 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water or other liquid used in the recipe.”
      Obviously adjust portion.

  • I’m trying to figure out what a large loaf of challah would classify as…How many slices of challah are required? Do I just cover the bottom or do I layer it? Thank you so much for all the delicious recipes!

    - Aileen on July 17, 2015 Reply
    • Hi Aileen, I don’t recall how many slices I used to make this dish, but one standard challah should be enough — you just cover the bottom of the dish. (If you’re a little short, you can always fill in with sandwich bread.) Hope that helps!

    The marriage of Grand Marnier and caramel was heavenly.
    Mine didn’t puff up as nicely as yours, but it was still the best breakfast/brunch casserole I have ever served. A real crowd pleaser.
    Thanks again, Jenn. Yo gave me another “go-to” recipe. And one that can be made ahead is so appreciated.

    WOW. The taste, texture, and presentation is heavenly. I served four grown men (my husband and three brothers-in-law, who were visiting from out of town) and they were still raving over the next couple of days. I loved being able to get this prepared (and so easily) the night before because I enjoy the meal and am much more relaxed not trying to serve, carry on conversation, and get everything cooked and beautifully presented at once. Great brunch dish that pleased all of us! Thank you!

    The first time i made it I used challah bread and it turned out perfectly. Second time I used white sandwich bread. Big mistake! It turned to mush. Still tasted good though. Don’t skip the hallah or brioche bread, it won’t turn out right. I like to make 1.5x the caramel too. That way it’s got plenty of sauce to go around.

    First, I have to say that the taste was AMAZING.

    I do have to follow that up with the caveat: you have to serve this HOT as the caramel on the bottom of the pan cools and turns into a solid piece fairly quickly. We found it difficult to have seconds – we reheated in the same pan the next day, but it was hard to get the bottom hot enough to melt the caramel without burning the top. I might make a more “traditional” french toast using the custard recipe she has here, and then have the caramel be a separate little dish for drizzling.

  • I know I’m a little later than the rest of the commenters but I had to pop in and thank you for this recipe! I took this dish to a ladies’ breakfast at church and it was a HIT! Several ladies asked for the recipe and I referred them all to this site. Also, I thought I’d share how I squeezed a dessert out of it: I saved the crusts that I’d cut off the challah bread and let them sit out overnight to go stale. Then I used them to make my family’s favorite bread pudding but I added a layer of this recipe’s caramel on the bottom and added orange zest and Grand Marnier to the custard mixture. FABU! I have a feeling I’ll be making Drunken Caramel Bread Pudding whenever I make the French Toast. And I have a feeling that will be OFTEN!

  • Hi Jen, I’m hesitant to say because I’ve never tried it and all eggnogs are different. You might just use it instead of the cream, and reduce the eggs in the recipe by one or two depending on how “eggy” the eggnog is. Also, if it’s spiked, you may want to omit the Grand Marnier. Hope that helps!

    - Jennifer on December 5, 2011 Reply
  • I’ve made this before and it’s delicious! I’m planning on making it again for Christmas morning. Could I use eggnog in place of the eggs and custard?

  • Sometimes I buy the tiny bottles that they have on airplanes or in hotel mini bars. If you can’t find Grand Marnier, you could also use Triple Sec or Cointreau. You could also just leave it out but then you’d miss out on the boozy orange flavor. Hope that helps!

      Grand Marnier would actually keep pretty much forever, but you couls also go buy a little tiny bottl (think airplane size bottle) from the liquor store for between $3-$5. :)

  • This was a big hit with my husband and brother-in-law yesterday. They ate so much of it, they had to take naps soon after :)
    I had forgotten to stop at the market for the Challah, so I used plain wheat sandwich bread – worked just fine. I also didn’t have a chance to make it the night before, and again, didn’t seem to affect the taste.

    One thing I added before serving: A few maple glazed pecans from your salad recipe.
