Directions

  • 1 Cut bread into cubes; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean tea towel to dry out a bit.
  • 2 Place nut cups on large cookie sheet. Place a few berries in each cup.
  • 3 While bread cubes are drying out, in 2-quart saucepan, heat both milks, cream, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the cinnamon, vanilla and vanilla bean 5 minutes or until warm throughout, stirring constantly. Set aside to steep 30 minutes. Remove vanilla bean. Beat eggs into mixture.
  • 4 Dunk bread cubes into milk-egg mixture; divide evenly among nut cups. Repeat with all of the bread. Cover unbaked French toast tightly; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 5 Heat oven to 350°F. Remove French toast from refrigerator; uncover. In small bowl, stir together flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the salt. With fork or fingers, cut in or rub butter into flour mixture until it resembles crumbs. Sprinkle Streusel Topping over French toast.
