Ingredients

For the french toast:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (your preferred variety)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 16 oz Panettone, cut into approximate 1" cubes

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted (4 tbsp)
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar for serving

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
  • Cut Panettone into approximately 1" cubes and place in a greased 8"x8" baking dish. Press down on the bread cubes a little bit so they're in an even layer.
  • Pour egg mixture over top of the Panettone. At this time, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • To make the crumb topping, whisk together brown sugar and 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in melted butter and stir. Add flour and combine until the mixture isn't too wet and can be pressed into crumbs.
  • Scatter crumbs evenly over top of the Panettone french toast bake.
  • Once oven is heated, bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the Panettone has absorbed the liquid and is set.
  • Let the french toast bake cool slightly and sprinkle confectioners' sugar over top before serving.
