"In my experience with working with caramel, when exposing it directly to a hot pan especially for long periods of time, the caramel can burn or stick to the pan as one of you has already pointed out. I suggest to those of you wanting to prevent this possibility that you could make the caramel glaze after cooking the French toast and then drizzle it on top of the French toast instead of pouring it directly into the pan. That way, if it hardens, it'll be on top of the toast instead of acting as a glue to the pan."

"I must have done something wrong with this recipe. It seemed great when it first came out of the oven but as it cooled a little the caramel hardened and we couldn't even eat it. I was disappointed because it sounded so good."
