Apple and Cranberry Baked French Toast

I first made this for my breakfast club at work. I made two 9x13 pans of it and every single piece was gone. Some people came back for thirds, it was a definite hit. C had asked for egg nog French toast, but I think egg nog is grosser than gross, so there was no way I was making it. He was disappointed, but still managed to eat three giant pieces. Even Miss F ate an entire slice. And the bonus is we have leftover dried cranberries for her to snack on.

Apple and Cranberry Baked French Toast

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 teaspoons cinnamon
3 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 loaf French bread or any other sweet bread, such as brioche or Hawaiian.
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla

Combine brown sugar, butter and 1/3 cinnamon in a 13 X 9 baking pan. Add apples and cranberries; toss until you coat the fruit well. Spread apple mixture evenly over baking dish. Arrange slices of bread on top of fruit/sugar mixture.

Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon and pour over the bread; make sure the bread is completely soaked.

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to 24 hours.

Bake covered in a 375 degree oven for approx 40-50 minutes. Uncover and bake another 5 minutes to lightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes; serve warm.

Thanks for this recipe! I made it for my husband's office and they ate it up! Luckily I was able to try a bit myself and it was delicious.
