Apple French Toast

    20 mins

    Apple purée and cinnamon add a sweet and moist variation to the classic batter of milk, eggs and sugar. An unusual but delicious idea for kid's brunch or Christmas morning, especially if you substitute brioche for the bread.

    Very yummy and moist french toast - We didn't even need any butter! I had cinnamon applesauce, so we used that, and I substituted pumpkin pie spice for plain ground cinnamon, which was very tasty. I must agree that this recipe makes more than six slices of french toast - I think I made 10 slices before running out of liquid, so plan accordingly. Also, be aware that the high sugar content of the batter makes it susceptible to burning, so keep a very close eye on the cooking toast; I found that medium heat worked best for me. Enjoy!  -  04 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very quick and easy to prepare. The taste was nice, but the bread was too soggy so next time I would cook it longer and use less cinnamon (about 1/2 what the recipe calls for).  -  30 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
