Baked Stone Fruit French Toast OverheadHere is a busy-morning recipe to get your day going. This baked stone fruit french toast recipe can be started the night before and then you just have to throw it in the oven in the morning while you are getting everything else ready. I also bake the french toast in smaller individual dishes which helps it bake even faster. I went with peaches and plums for this version and mixed it in with the bread so that I can get away with less sugar. The natural sugars from the fruit help to sweeten the dish. You can also get away with not using any oil or butter when baking, which makes the recipe even healthier. For a bit of a different taste, I have used fresh basil and allspice, along with cinnamon to flavor the french toast.
