👩‍🍳 What Pan To Use For French Toast Bake In Instant Pot

I used this 7 inch round cake pan to make my eggnog French toast bake. Now, you can use any Instant Pot safe container to use, as long as the mixture fits in properly and you can cover it with aluminum foil.

You can also use a trivet to set the cake pan on or use a silicone sling. Either work, you just don’t want your pan sitting in the water with nothing under it.

🥐Variations To Recipe

  • Add in some raisins or cranberries into the mix
  • Dust with powdered sugar once done
  • Add in some pecans or walnuts for a crunchy aspect
  • Consider adding rum extract for a fun twist in flavor.
  • Different types of cubed bread will work, just as long as it isn’t too soft.

This is one of my favorite eggnog breakfast recipes we make often. It is a family favorite for sure.

🍴 Storing Leftovers

If you have leftovers go right ahead and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The French toast will store for a couple of days. You will find it kind of changes texture a bit, where it can dry out or be a bit soggier even.

Just reheat in the microwave or cover and heat up in the oven.

French toast works great with sturdier or stale bread. If it is too soft it will sog up too much and become mushy.

You can bake in the oven at 350 degrees, then cook for 15-20 minutes or until the French toast bake is done.

Eggnog has a lot of warmth in it, so you don't really need extra flavors. If you want go ahead and add extra cinnamon for more flavor.

You could swap vanilla with rum extract for a different flavor component.

Feel free to add in raisins, dried cranberries or even nuts to the French toast eggnog mix for added flavor.

Drizzle with maple syrup, sprinkle with powdered sugar or make a powdered sugar and milk glaze to drizzle over the top.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for a few days. Then reheat in the microwave or place in the oven to reheat.
