There’s nothing better than melty peanut butter. I made this Fluffernutter Baked French Toast for Easter and thought it was so fun, especially since my fam love peanut butter and fluff flavors! Baked french toast is super handy since it gets all mixed and goes into the oven as one fell swoop! I used mini marshmallows, making this super easy and it would be a great one for kids to help with! I was making it early morning before little ones would check if the Easter bunny came! Plus, I was blogging so that’s definitely a solo project!
Peanut Butter & Marshmallow French Toast
Ingredients: (for ~5-6 servings)
1/2 loaf Italian bread
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup maple syrup (more for serving)
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Slice the bread into ~1 inch slices and 1 inch cubes. (I did this the night before- when it gets a bit stale it is better!)
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
Whisk together the eggs, cream, extract, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
Stir in the bread and mix to coat well, but with care to not breakdown the bread completely.
Spray a 9″x9″ or 9″ deep dish pie plate, or similar sized baking dish with non-stick spray.
Add in half the bread mixture with half the mini marshmallows and with half the peanut butter. From a big scoop of peanut butter, push off small dollops of pb with another spoon.
Then add in the rest of the bread mixture and the rest of the peanut butter and marshmallows.
Bake for 40 minutes covered, then another 10 minutes uncovered.
Serve with syrup and enjoy!
We loved it! The marshmallows were surprisingly not too sweet which surprised me. I also served it with bacon which helps for some salt flavor! It is good as leftovers too. Being home all the time has me thinking more baked french toasts should be in rotation. Last year I made a Nutella Croissant Baked French Toast which is also fantastic- if you were looking for more ways to consume nutella!
