This Sweet Cherry Gingerbread French Toast Bake is the perfect holiday breakfast or brunch recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas. It can be prepped the night before to make your morning easier and is packed with flavor.



1 baguette (whole wheat, multigrain, etc)
10 eggs
1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup hemp seeds (optional)
2 cups chopped frozen sweet cherries
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, optional


  1. Cube bread and place in a greased 9×13 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk, molasses and spices and whisk well.
  3. Pour over bread and mix well with hands to coat.
  4. Add hemp seeds, frozen cherries and 1/4 cup chocolate chips. 
  5. Mix well and press into pan.
  6. Sprinkle with extra frozen cherries and remaining chocolate chips.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (if needed)
  8. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.


You don’t have to make this the night before, but I’d let it sit for an hour or two if possible to help the bread absorb the egg mixture before baking.

Feel free to mix in chopped or slivered nuts or sprinkle some on top!
