Cinnamon-Honey French Toast

Any raisin or cinnamon-swirl loaf can be used for this all-time favorite. Unlike stovetop French toast, these slices emerge from the oven with a sugary-crisp top and custardy-soft bottom. Serve them sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with fruit or drizzled with warm honey or maple syrup.
