Cooking is all about experimenting, right? Adding this,
taking out that, replacing this or that with another ingredient… Just about
any recipe can easily be “veganized,” and when I saw Paula Deen’s
recipe for Baked French
Toast Casserole
, I knew that I had to make it.

Lately, we sure have had fun veganizing with Paula Deen. What recipes have you successfully made cruelty-free? Share the links below and

Baked French Toast
Casserole With Maple Syrup

Day 1 Ingredients: 
1 loaf French bread (13 to 16 ounces)
 for 8 eggs*
2 cups vegan

1 cup milk

2 Tbsp. vegan cane sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
Dash salt

*I used 1 banana, 1/2 cup applesauce, and Ener-G Egg Replacer for 4 eggs, and it turned out fine.

  • Slice the French bread into about 20 slices,
    1-inch each.
  • Arranges the slices in a generously “buttered”
    9-inch-by-13-inch flat baking dish, in rows, overlapping the slices.
  • In a large bowl, combine the egg replacer, vegan
    creamer, milk alternative, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and beat
    with a rotary beater or whisk until blended but not too bubbly.
  • Pour the mixture over the bread slices, making
    sure that all are covered evenly, and spoon some of the mixture in between the
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

the Praline Topping)
2 sticks (1 cup) vegan butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup*
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

    *I substituted Raw Agave Nectar because that
    was what I had on hand.

    • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    • Prepare the praline topping by combining all the
      ingredients in a medium bowl and blending well.
    • Spread the praline topping evenly over the bread
      and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden brown.
