Overnight French Toast (2007 - Apres The Last Cache Bashe of Summer Event)
1 loaf French Bread, 5 eggs, 3/4 c milk, 1/4 Tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 - 20 oz bag of frozen strawberries (I use a plastic container of sliced strawberries and I think it is about 16 oz), 4 ripe sliced bananas, 3/4 - 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp to 1 T apple pie spice or cinnamon. Cut loaf of bread into 8 or more thick slices. Combine eggs, milk, baking powder and vanilla. Pour mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (I do this in a heavy duty plastic gallon bag. It packs nicely in a frig, sailboat frig, cooler or ice chest.) In the morning combine frozen strawberries (I thaw them overnight), sliced bananas, sugar and spice. Put fruit mixture in greased baking dish, top with prepared bread. Sprinkle bread with additional sugar and cinnamon. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
