Peach Cobbler French Toast Casserole


Everyone loves fresh #peachcobbler, but turn it into #breakfast-! Seriously, it's the perfect way to start out the school year! Peach Cobbler French Toast Casserole


I love that we are starting to get fresh peaches from the local farmers and there’s nothing like peaches and fresh whipped cream. If you’ve never made your own, well you have missed out. I love everything about fresh whipped cream including (and I know this is a little silly) knowing that some sweet dairy farm here in Utah worked hard just for you and I. It’s why I teamed up with the Dairy Council a year ago to talk about delicious dairy products.


I wait all summer for the farm stands to start carrying peaches and as soon as they do I’m all over it like flies on a porta potty….er that’s gross but I’m all over it, and that’s the point. This Peach Cobbler French Toast Casserole is seriously the perfect breakfast to celebrate such a lovely, luscious fruit.

Good heavens, just look at all of that buttery cobbler, crumble topping and it’s swimming in our favorite buttermilk syrup. Mmmmm, buttermilk syrup. Shall we have a moment of silence for the world’s best syrup? Even my Aunt Jemima (no joke, he’d rather have store bought than homemade maple syrup) prefers buttermilk syrup over all else. It’s fantastic.

We’ve adopted the tradition, like many of you have, of Saturday morning breakfast. We sleep in, make something crazy delicious and sit around the table taking our time to eat and just chat with each other. We love Saturday mornings. This recipe actually starts Friday so I just have to bake it on Saturday.

Just tear up day old french bread, we use Pillsbury as I can quickly bake two loaves and not worry about slaving in the kitchen, and pour over your milk mixture. Meanwhile cook the peaches all tender and cinnamon-y and dump over the top. Our girls like to prepare the crumb mixture because they can just smash everything together and then pick up handfuls to sprinkle over the entire dish. I cover everything and place it in the fridge overnight!

The next morning we bake everything until hot and bubbly, and serve with fresh whipped cream and sometimes I’ll whip up the buttermilk syrup too to make it really over the top. The whole time we are all in the kitchen laughing about funny things that happened during the week like our little one pretending to be “pwegenant” and both girls are giggling as they put on dances for us. It’s pretty much awesome. It’s such a slow, happy moment for us. Plus it’s something that happens regardless of school being in or whatever is keeping us busy all week. No matter what we at least get Saturday breakfast together. Gosh, I wish it was Saturday already.

  7. Allow to cool while you make the topping.
  8. In a large bowl add the flours, sugars and cinnamon.
  9. Whisk together with a fork and cut in the butter until it’s well incorporated and when you grab a handful in your hand it should stick together like wet sand.

  11. Set in the fridge overnight.
  12. Heat the oven to 350 the next morning, remove the foil and bake for 45 minutes.
