Apple Cinnamon French Toast

See.. I'm the biggest fan of apple desserts. Apple pie, apple streusel, apple crisp, apple cobbler- you name it! But having a caramelized, cinnamon-y, and easy to make apple breakfast personally beats them all. Warm, sweet apples, and a hint of cinnamon really elevated French toast to the next level- creating the breakfast of your dreams. Did I mention it's incredibly easy to make? 15 minutes is all you need to create a new crowd-pleasing brunch favorite. I also sprinkled some toasted walnuts on top of my toast but that is just for extra crunch- you can totally opt for just syrup and the apples.

French Toast
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk 
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 8-10 slices of bread
Apple Topping
  • 3 medium apples- peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Apple Topping
Add apple slices, brown sugar, and butter in a medium sauce pan.
Cook over medium high heat until brown sugar has dissolved and butter has melted.
Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for an additional 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly to thicken while you prepare toast.
French Toast
In a large, wide bowl whisk together eggs, vanilla, milk, and cinnamon. Stir in flour and whisk until smooth.
Completely submerge one slice of bread in the mixture, careful to coat both sides. Lift the bread out of the liquid and allow to drip off excess.
Cook toast in a large pan over medium heat 1-2 minutes until lightly browned, then flip and cook other side 1-2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread slices. Generously top toasts with apple-cinnamon mixture. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.

    A co-worker shared a tip to keep the french toast from being too soggy. Lightly toast the bread in the toaster before hand! I was surprised it works! Get all that egg mixture into the bread without it falling apart before you get it into the pan. What a shocker...and you don't need to stale the bread overnight like I used to do.
