Peach Cobbler French Toast Casserole [+Video]


This peach cobbler french toast casserole is loaded with cinnamon-y peaches, tender sweet bread and a crumb topping that will knock your socks off.

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 me. It’s why I teamed up with the Dairy Council 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 lovin’ husband (no joke, he’d rather have store bought than homemade maple syrup) prefers buttermilk syrup over all else. It’s fantastic.

How to Make Peach Cobbler French Toast Casserole

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.

Here are the basic steps:

  1. Prep: Grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Tear: Rip up the bread and place it in the prepared pan.
  3. Combine: Add all the ingredients for the casserole to a bowl and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour: Pour the milk and egg mixture over the bread and press it gently to saturate the bread.
  5. Simmer: Add all the ingredients for the peaches to a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Simmer for 3 minutes until the peaches are tender and saucy.
  6. Cool: Allow the filling to cool while you make the topping.
  7. Whisk: Add all the ingredients for the crumble topping to a bowl and whisk to combine. Cut in the butter until everything is incorporated and holds together like wet sand.
  8. Sprinkle: Add the peaches over the top of the bread and then sprinkle the crumble topping all over the top.
  9. Rest: Cover the casserole dish with foil and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 1 hour).
  10. Bake: Remove the foil and bake for 45 to 55 minutes.
  11. Serve: Let the family dig in and serve with fresh whipped cream or buttermilk syrup.

Saturday mornings in our house…the whole time we are all in the kitchen laughing about funny things that happened during the week. 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.

These instructions can be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.

Are Peaches Healthy?

Peaches have many health benefits. Peaches are high in dietary fiber. They are low carbohydrate, and contain abundant vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and niacin. They are also a good source of many minerals, such as, potassium, copper, manganese, and phosphorous.

What are the Best Peaches for Baking?

You want to find freestone peaches because they are sweeter and easier to work with. For a list of my favorite freestone peaches, head to our peach cobbler post!

Can I Use Canned or Frozen Peaches?

Yes, both canned and frozen peaches can be used. Peach season is so short that we have to be able to use something, right?! If you use canned peaches, pay close attention to the syrup used for canning. You don’t want it to be canned with heavy syrup. Be sure to drain the peaches thoroughly.

If you use frozen peaches, let them thaw completely and drain. Taste them and make sure they are sweet enough. Frozen fruit tends to be lacking sweetness and canned fruit is usually too sweet.

Can French Toast Casserole Be Prepared Ahead?

You can prepare french toast casserole up to the point of baking it. Then cover with foil and refrigerate until ready to bake. I wouldn’t wait more than 2 days maximum.

Storing and Reheating

French toast casserole should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep for 3-4 days.

To reheat a large portion of the casserole, I would recommend warming it up in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until heated through. If you are just warming up a single serving, I just zap it in the microwave.
