Champagne Raspberry Baked French Toast is the perfect way to kick off the New Year, Valentine’s Day, or an anniversary! Prep it the night before so all you have to do is bake it in the morning!
Sometimes I feel like we get so caught up in New Year’s Eve, that we don’t really do much celebrating on New Year’s Day. Most of my recipes for the holiday definitely focus on the night of the party, so I think it would be fun to carry things over a bit into the morning with this Champagne Raspberry Baked French Toast!
This breakfast casserole can easily be prepped the night before so all you’ll have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven and bake! The pink champagne is whisked right into the egg mixture for light and fruit accents, then it’s loaded up with raspberries for little pops of flavor throughout.
I love this recipe because it’s not too soggy or eggy, you get a soft center and a slightly crisp top. This confectioners’ sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness and the maple syrup pulls out some of the vanilla and cinnamon undertones in this dish.
Overall, the dish is relatively mild, you won’t notice much of an alcoholic after taste and if you want to make the flavor even more vibrant, top the french toast with some of my Easy Raspberry Filling and whipped cream just before serving!
This is a delicious brunch dish that is perfect not just for New Year’s Day but for Valentine’s Day, bridal showers, anniversaries, and any weekend you just feel like indulging a little!
