The maple extract adds all the flavour of maple syrup without the sugar. Also, using maple syrup in this recipe would mean you have too much liquid in there, so maple extract is a good alternative. I like this brand. If you don’t have any though, you can simply omit this ingredient.

History of French Toast

I love learning facts about food history and I was especially curious about the origin of baked French toast maple cinnamon skillet. I discovered French toast was invented by Joseph French in 1724. That’s right – it’s named after a person and is nothing to do with France!

However, if you go back even further in time, the Romans used to soak milk in eggs and milk and fry it in butter or oil. That was back in the early 5th century!

It’s a great recipe for stale bread, which is why medieval Europeans made a very similar dish. After all, there’s no reason to waste stale bread when you can make a tasty breakfast or brunch with it! If you have bagels which are past their prime, try this bagel breakfast bake instead.

French Toast Bake Recipe FAQs

Can you reheat French toast bake leftovers?

Yes and this Pillsbury French toast bake tastes just as good the next day! Microwave leftovers or reheat them in a toaster oven. This recipe isn’t so good for freezing so keep it refrigerated and use within a day or two. Freezing it just seems to make it mushy. Since it’s pretty easy to make from fresh, I’d avoid freezing it.

What can I use in place of the Grands biscuits?

This recipe is delicious with refrigerated cinnamon rolls if you don’t have any Grands biscuits. Using those would mean omitting the cinnamon from the recipe, else the finished French toast bake recipe might be a case of cinnamon overload! If you experiment with anything else, let me know how your French toast bake recipe comes out!
