This French toast casserole is a gorgeous breakfast for sharing, super easy to prepare and to cook in the morning for your family and friends. Day-old bread is soaked in a spiced coconut milk batter and then baked until the top is slightly crisp and the dish is warmed through. Decorate with cranberries for a festive touch and a nice tart taste that complements the sweet, creamy bread. It tastes equally as beautiful with a sprinkling of raisins!

Festive French Toast Casserole [Vegan]






  • 7 slices of day-old white bread
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup soy/almond milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornflour/starch
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries


  1. Generously grease a long baking dish with vegan butter and sprinkle with a little coconut sugar.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together coconut milk, soy/almond milk, coconut sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and spices until smooth.
  3. Add the cornflour and mix again, making sure there are no lumps.
  4. Pour a small amount of the liquid on the bottom of the dish (about half an inch).
  5. Layer the slices of bread in the dish and sprinkle the cranberries over the bread, pushing some down the sides and in between the slices.
  6. Pour the rest of the liquid over the bread making sure it falls between the layers of bread and soaks the entire slice.
  7. Cover the dish with tin foil and place in the fridge either overnight or for at least an hour for the mixture to soak in.
  8. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  9. Once the oven is heated to temperature, place in the oven with the foil still on and cook for 45-50 minutes.
  10. Take out the oven and serve.
