Based on previous reviews, I made some changes. I used 6 oz of cream cheese, and reduced milk in the first mixture to 1 cup. To the custard mix, I added 1/2 tsp of lemon extract. I prepared it the night before. Upon removing from frig the next morning, I flipped the french toasts. Let sit for 30 minutes, then baked for about 45 min. Results: Still soggy on the bottom, dry on the top. Not enough cream cheesy flavor for me. Looks NOTHING like the photo, The cinnamon gives it a brown look. The light lemon flavor was a nice touch in the custard. I will not be making this again.
