Raspberry lemon cream french toast bake! Breakfast casseroles are easy, convenient, and feed a family with minimal effort.
We love making them for a special occasion and then heating up the leftovers for the remainder of the week (perfect for busy weekday mornings!).
Based off of our favorite blueberry lemon cream french toast bake, this french toast bake swaps out the blueberries for raspberries and adds a few more warms spices to the french toast and streusel.
The result was a great alternative to our favorite go-to. While it’s not as healthy as the healthier carrot snack cake from last week, this french toast bake is worth the splurge!
Sweet lemon cream filled with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest is sandwiched between layers of french toast and fresh raspberries.
A light layer of buttery streusel tops the french toast casserole and gives you a bit of a sweet crunch in each bite.
After baking we like to sprinkle on even more fresh lemon zest for a pop of color and more of that fresh lemon flavor. If you want to bake it the next day, just prep the french toast bake, cover it, stick it in the fridge, and pop it in the oven the next morning.
Top with a drizzle of maple syrup or eat it plain! This breakfast bake is perfect for Easter brunch, Mother’s Day or any other morning where you want something a little extra special!
