Once you have your bread cubed, put it in your lightly greased baking dish. I used my 9×13 pan.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla and half of the sweetened condensed milk.

After they are all mixed pour the milk mixture over the bread.  It should pretty much cover the bread.  I like to lightly press the bread down using a fork or spoon to help the bread absorb the milk mixture.

Now take the rest of the sweetened condensed milk and drizzle it on top. It’s ready for the oven.


Here’s what it will look like when it comes out of the oven.  As the sweetened condensed milk heats it turns into the Dulce De Leche.

You can either eat it as is (I think it’s perfect and sweet) or if you’re looking for a little extra fancy sweet treat you can top it with a spoonful of this Homemade Buttermilk Salted Caramel Sauce.  Oh, it’s SOOO good!

    My mouth is watering! I grew up eating French Toast, and this looks even better. I wonder if it’s okay to use regular milk if you don’t have condensed milk?

    • Rachel says:

      So here’s the thing, the sweetened condensed milk is what turns caramel-y. You can most definitely skip the condensed milk in place of regular milk and 1/2 cup sugar or so to add the sweetness.

  2. Amber says:

    I am definitely going to try it with the sauce!! Is it possible to assemble, refrigerate, and bake in the morning?

    • Rachel says:

      Yes, you can assemble the night before and bake it off in the morning. If you do choose to do that, use a day old or crusty bread. It will hold up through the overnight soak a little better where as a regular softer bread will go a little more mushy.

  3. This recipe is literally making my mouth water. I love Dulce de Leche cake so I know that I would also enjoy this variation of it.

  4. My daughter will love this. Pinning for when she comes back to visit us from Chicago!

  5. Missy says:

    I normally don’t like Dulce De Leche cake, but your pictures makes this look irresistible! And I would eat a shoe if it was covered in your caramel sauce!

  6. Charlotte says:

    Wow this looks delicious, I have a new pan as well that I want to test out so this would be the perfect idea! Plus we love french toast so this is a cool bake and recipe!

  7. Kit Stanwood says:

    Oh wow at first I thought it was going to be pieces of bread but you cut it up and put it in a pan! I’ve never seen it done that way! Very cool and yummy looking (:

  8. I love French Toast casseroles/bakes/whatever you want to call them. I make one for every big holiday breakfast that we are all home as a family. I love the flavor profile of this one, and will totally be adding it for breakfast for the next big holiday!

  9. Roxanne says:

    That looks so delicious! I guarantee my family will flip if I made this for breakfast!

  10. Jean says:

  13. CourtneyLynne says:

    Omg can we say yum?!! Your French toast bake looks absolutely amazing!!! Must give your recipe a try!

  14. Toni says:

    That looks so good. I’m thinking this is going to be a nice addition to our Sunday brunch menu!

  15. Becky Kendall says:

    Had this over the holidays and it is fantastic.

  16. Jen says:

    Can you skip the normal milk and only use the sweetened condensed milk? Kids just drank all our milk;)

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Jen! I hate running out of an ingredient just when you get ready to make a recipe. Been there, done that! LOL Just this last weekend my husband made breakfast and used all the eggs, the eggs I needed to make rolls for Mother’s Day.

      As for the recipe. You really need the added moisture. If you have evaporated milk, cream, half and half or even coconut milk, you can substitute. The french toast bake will come out hard and dry without it. I hope it still turned out ok for you.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    […]  But then I got this great idea right before I started… in stead of just doing my favorite Dulce De Leche French Toast Bake, why not make it with a fun s’mores twist? Who doesn’t like s’mores, right?   […]
