Slow cooker recipes are simply a life and time saver! Whenever we have family in town who are staying with us, I like to use my slow cooker as much as possible.

This also means taking into consideration everyone’s likes and thankfully, this Peach Raspberry Slow Cooker French Toast fit the bill perfectly. I didn’t have to work hard to get everything together and while it was cooking I was able to have my coffee and spend time with each guest until everyone was up and the french toast was done. We all raved about how the sweetness and the tartness were perfect together and the custard-like french toast was decadent. Simple and amazing- that’s how we like our food!
Other Recipes to Serve with Peach Raspberry Slow Cooker French Toast

Custard: You will need eggs, milk, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Feel free to swap the heavy whipping cream with half-and-half for a creamy, lower-calorie option.
Bread: You can use your favorite french toast bread in this recipe, such as challah, french bread, or texas toast.
Fruit: Fresh peaches and raspberries really bring a lightness to this french toast. If you can’t find fresh peaches look for no sugar added canned peaches or frozen peaches (that you’ll need to thaw).
How to Make Peach Raspberry Slow Cooker French Toast
STEP ONE: Blanch the peaches by dropping them into a large pot of boiling water for 30 seconds and then transferring them to a bowl of ice water for 10 seconds. Remove them from the ice bath and peel the skin from the peaches. (This makes it REALLY easy!) Then remove the pits and slice the peaches.
STEP TWO: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and cinnamon.
STEP THREE: Put the cubed bread into a large bowl and then pour the custard mixture over the bread. Gently mix until the bread is coated. Fold in the peaches and raspberries and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
STEP FOUR: Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and pour the french toast mixture into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours. Then take the lid off and continue cooking for 30 minutes. Make each plate extra special by adding whipped cream and/or powdered sugar on top of the french toast and enjoy!
Tips for Success
- If you can’t use fresh peaches then using canned or jarred peaches is a good swap, just rinse the peaches and slice them into bite sized pieces.
- You can prepare this recipe the night before and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, cook it in the slow cooker as directed.
- Using fat free half and half is a good alternative to heavy whipping cream, you will still get the thick creaminess that makes this french toast so delicious.
What if I want to bake the Peach Raspberry Slow Cooker French Toast?
If you’d like to bake this because you’re short on time then prepare everything the night before and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, let the mix warm up slightly on the counter while preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 cake pan with cooking spray and bake the french toast, uncovered, for 40 minutes.
How long can we enjoy the leftovers?
The Peach Raspberry Slow Cooker French Toast is great if covered and refrigerated for up to three days but if you don’t think you’ll finish it by then you can also freeze it! Once it has been cooked, cover the leftovers in an airtight container and freeze. Thaw the french toast before warming in the microwave.

- I like to grab a loaf of French bread and let it sit out for a couple of days for this recipe. Baguettes, Italian bread, or crusty bread from your store’s bakery will work too. This recipe works best when the bread is dried out and a bit stale. If you didn’t grab the bread ahead of time, cut it into cubes and then bake at 275 degrees F for about 12 minutes to dry it out.
