      Great lens!! Now I know what I keep doing wrong when I make French Toast at home. I had no idea I needed to bake it. The video explains it so well. I'm going to try this tomorrow morning. I have some bread that is a couple of days old and should be perfect for this. Thanks for the great tip.

      Give it a go, especially if using really thick bread. The oven will cook it right through without burning the outside.
