Baked Stuffed French Toast

I wanted something simple. Baked french toast. This was the first time I have used croisants and I think I will be doing this again.

I made the batter and put it into the refrigerator for a couple hours. I mixed the berries with sugar and a little cinnamon and put that in the fridge for a couple hours too.

I pre-heated the oven, stuffed the croissants with the prepared berries and dipped in the batter rolling it around a little.

Served with maple syrup. Totally delish.

I seriously adjusted the recipe below, I used more the spirit of the recipe than the body.

My submission for week 16 of 52 weeks of baking.
