  • Is the French bread used in the Overnight Apple Cinnamon French Toast Casserole, a regular French baguette?

  • I haven't measured, but just glancing at it, it looks like the ingredients in the suggested quantities would have difficulty all fitting in an 8 x 8? Am I missing something?

    • Hi Mariam Collins,
      It does look that way, but it should work, although it will fill the dish to the top! Remember, of course, that the powdered sugar/milk icing will be on the side. Hope it turns out well for you!
