French Toast Souffle

by Laura

Recently, on Good Things Utah (a local tv show) they had Tami Vincent from Kneader’s Bakery share a recipe for French Toast Souffle. Kneader’s is this wonderful bakery/restaurant here in Utah. I like to go there and have their turkey cranberry croissant sandwich. It’s a very yummy place to go.
Now, this recipe originally called for a loaf of Kneader’s chunky cinnamon bread. Knowing that a lot of my readers can’t get a loaf of Kneader’s bread, when I made this recipe, I made it with a loaf of cinnamon bread from my local Smith’s grocery store bakery. I got a loaf that hadn’t been sliced. I think it work just fine.
This recipe is up at the top of my list when it comes to baked french toast recipes. My favorite part of this was the cream cheese, butter, syrup mixture that you put on the top. It turned out to be all caramel like and ooey-gooey. That was so yummy. I also served mine with fresh strawberries which also added to the flavor. It helped balance out all the sweetness in this french toast. YUM! You’ll also see why this recipe has the word souffle in the title. This really puffs up in the oven. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to put a baking sheet under you dish to prevent a mess in your oven.

I just found your site today and I am so excited to try this recipe. I am making it for brunch tomorrow, with some substitutions. I am using french bread instead of cinnamon, strawberry cream cheese instead of plain, and strawberry syrup instead of maple syrup. I am hoping it turns out well!

I’ve seen a similar recipe posted at https://gourmetmomma.wordpress.com/2009/05/01/stuffed-french-toast-casserole/ another favorite food blog of mine. Both look really good! Love the touch of strawberries.

I love Kneaders too! This sounds wonderful!

I’m curious what the cream cheese adds to the flavor after it’s baked. Does it make the dish at all cheesy like a cheese danish?
