Before You Cook
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.
Make the Milk-Egg Mixture
Combine milk, liquid egg, ¼ cup water, melted butter, malt powder, 2 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. lemon zest, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl.
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.
Bake the French Toast Casserole
Place casserole in oven and bake until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. While french toast casserole bakes, make icing.
Make the Icing
Combine sour cream and half the powdered sugar (reserve remaining for garnish) in a small mixing bowl.
Plate the Dish
Cool French toast casserole 5 minutes. Spread on icing and garnish with remaining powdered sugar. Serve directly from casserole dish.
