I tried a new recipe this weekend that I'm sharing with you. It's a French Toast Bake that I put together on Saturday afternoon, then threw in the oven on Sunday morning. It was very easy to make and we both enjoyed it. The leftovers warm up nicely in the microwave too.

the cream cheese mixture by beating the cream cheese, powdered sugar,
lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon peel. Spoon it on to the bread cubes and

together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, salt, vanilla, another dash of
lemon juice and a tsp of lemon peel. Whisk it well! Pour the mixture

you are ready to bake, pull it out and let it warm up while the oven
preheats to 350. Bake for 45 minutes or until the bread is all puffy,
golden and crispy. Check to make sure the center is cooked well.
You may eat it as is, or serve with syrup.
