  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Place bread directly on oven rack and toast until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. While bread toasts, zest lemon, halve, and juice. Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, 30-45 seconds. Alternatively, melt butter in a small pan over medium heat.

  2. 2

    Make the Milk-Egg Mixture

    Combine milk, liquid egg, 1/4 cup water, melted butter, malt powder, 2 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. lemon zest, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl.

  3. 3

    Assemble the French Toast Casserole

    Place four bread slices in prepared casserole dish. If bread won't fit, tear toast into 1" pieces. Press down into a single layer. Pour half the milk-egg mixture over toast. Top with strawberries and their juices. Place remaining bread slices on top of strawberries. Pour remaining milk-egg mixture over top. Press on top layer to ensure liquid is absorbed.

  4. 4

    Bake the French Toast Casserole

    Place casserole in oven and bake until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. While french toast casserole bakes, make icing.

  5. 5

    Make the Icing

    Combine sour cream and half the powdered sugar (reserve remaining for garnish) in a small mixing bowl.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish
