This tasty breakfast is full of wonderful fall flavor. Apple cinnamon French toast is delicious batter style coating on the french toast. The mixure is a combination of eggs, milk, and flour. This is similar to my recipe for fluffy french toast.
The recipe makes enough for 6-8 slices of bread. The number will vary based on the size of the slices of bread you use. I used a loaf of french bread that I buy from my local Costco. The slices in this loaf are huge, so the batter was only enough batter to coat 5 slices.
Next, is a delicious cinnamon apple topping. Fresh apple slices cook in a mixture of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. It creates tender apple slices with a sweet cinnamony syrup. It gives you all those flavors of fall and is the perfect compliment to these slices of french toast.
Now, the picture doesn’t show this, but I also added whipped cream on top of my french toast right before I ate it. I highly recommend you do the same when you serve this apple cinnamon french toast. It adds a nice creamy cool texture to this.Print
