Raspberry & Pecan French Toast

Cedar Oak Farms
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Servings 12 slices


  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup sugar + 1/3 cup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups of half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 – 14 slices day old bread


  • In a medium bowl mix the raspberries with the 1 cup sugar add the pecans. Mix well and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together 1/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, and eggs. Stir in half-and-half and vanilla.
  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Layer the pan with thick slices of day-old bread. Any bread you have on hand and need to use up is good. I am using French bread in this recipe.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over bread gently lifting the sides to let the bread soak up all the egg mixture. You want all this pooled egg mixture to soak into the bread and absorb all those wonderful flavors.
  • Turn the bread once or twice and let sit about 20 – 30 minutes until there is no more liquid on the bottom of the pan. You can refrigerator overnight as well.
  • Gently spoon the raspberry and pecan mixture over the top of the bread. I only use the sugar that glazed over the berries and discard the rest.
  • Place in a preheated 375°F oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite maple syrup or drizzle a powdered sugar glaze over the top.

  1. I made french toast with raspberry jam this morning!

    Get out of my head!!

    Okay, no . . don’t. You can stay since you’re bringing the flavor.

    1. I’m going to tell you the truth because I think you can handle it. The thought of being in your head is both fascinating and terrifying at the same time. 😂

      But honestly, I’m okay skipping through your mesmerizing head. Especially if it involves raspberries and French toast!

      Thanks for the kindness!

      1. That is absolutely the truthiest thing I’ve heard today. Defined, that means it’s the legit stuff. Buahahahaha!

        I got on that raspberries and french toast kick from having made myself a grilled cheese sammie with brie with raspberry dipping sauce and getting hooked.

        Thank you back Chi-town!

          1. Ciabatta bread and brie. Low heat to get those two dancing partners to crush on each other. Before I hit on the raspberry dipping sauce, I used Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced. They gave the savory goodness a sweet kick.

          2. My next lunch!!
            And you, sir, can write all my posts going forward with all your clever word phasing!

          3. You’ll knock it out of the park.

            And while I thank you kindly for the props, your ability to rhyme and dime your recipes is, as Uma would say . . . disco!
