A Story About My Favorite Peach Baked French Toast

The BEST Peach Baked French Toast Recipe

I have been perfecting this peach baked french toast recipe for almost 8 years now.

The first time I ever made it was for my best friend’s birthday.

August, 2010

For 20 years, we never missed a birthday.

Even the summer after college when I was living in the Andes Mountains of Peru, she sent me an email on my birthday.

August 2000

When Zach and I moved back to Lancaster, PA 8 years ago I started making breakfast for her birthday, and she would buy me Starbucks.

She always picked my peach-baked french toast with homemade whipped cream.

She would have been 36 today.

But instead of celebrating 36 years on earth, we are celebrating her 2nd year in Heaven.

August 2015 – Girls’ night to celebrate Heather’s 30th.

Heather went to be with Jesus on November 29, 2019 after a long battle with breast cancer.

The above picture was taken the last time she had my peach-baked french toast for her birthday.

She passed away 3 months later.

Thanks to Heather’s love for peaches and homemade whipped cream, I have been able to hone this recipe to near perfection over the years.

It has become one of my go-to recipes for overnight guests or family vacations because it can be deep-frozen until ready to bake.

Thaw it overnight in the fridge and then bake according to the directions. 

The Challah bread is the key to a richly flavored bread layer and homemade whipped cream is always a winner.

Happy Heavenly birthday, Heath. This one’s for you.

Bon appetit!
