Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Milk
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 8 thick slices egg bread or French bread
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter melted

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) water
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 3 apples peeled, cored and sliced

Preparation

In a large flat dish whisk eggs with milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip bread into egg mixture. Turn to coat bread well. Allow bread to soak up egg mixture at least 5 min.

To cook, use one or two (depending on the size of the bread) baking sheets. Either line with aluminum foil and brush generously with melted butter or spray well with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bread in a single layer on prepared pan(s).

Bake in a preheated 375 °F (190 °C) oven for 12 min. Turn bread over. Bake 10 to 15 min longer until browned and puffed.

Apples and cinnamon syrup

Add butter and brown sugar to a deep skillet. Cook about 3 min until melted. Add water, cinnamon and apples. Cook just until tender about 8 to 10 min. Serve French toast with Apples and Cinnamon Syrup on top.
