French Toast with Steamed Apples

 
Those who know me well, know that I enjoy my French toast. I realize most people probably do not use a recipe for this, but for those who like to follow one, here is my favorite version.
Ingredients:
  • 8 thick slices Texas Toast or French Bread (60% whole wheat)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Method:
  1. Preheat griddle between low and medium heat.
  2. In a shallow dish, such as a pie plate, beat eggs well using a fork and blend in the milk
  3. Dip each slice into the egg batter, turning it over, then lifting it and letting the egg drip off, even slightly squeezing the sides to make sure bread is wet throughout but not heavy.
  4. Place on heated griddle (I use a square non-stick) and cook several minutes on each side. Make sure it is not so hot that it browns too quickly.
  5. Place cooked toast on rack in 175 F oven to keep warm.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small pot, cook apple in butter, sprinkled with a mix of 1 Tbsp white sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Cook, stirring as needed,  until soft, about 5 minutes.
  7. Serve toast with cooked apples and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  8. Left over slices freeze well. Make extra to pop in the toaster on mornings when you can't fuss.

  1. Hi,

    I am very impressed after reading through parts of your blog. With your cooking skills I think you could be interested in this competition I have found. You cook your national dish and then you have the opportunity to win an iPad mini or money. It could also be a good chance for you to let more people know about your blog since you will be shown on their homepage and in a cookbook!
    Here's the presentation about the competition:

  2. I love French toast too! I often pop the egg soaked bread into a waffle iron too. Last weekend we had a left over bag of King Hawaiian dinner rolls. I slice the rolls in half to open them up and made French toast with then using ready to pour eggs and pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I think I have found my ultimate French toast recipe in terms of taste and speed.

  3. When making French toast for my granddaughter I cut a pocket into the side of the bread, tuck in some chocolate chips then egg-dip and cook the toast as usual. She likes whipped cream or ice cream on the side and then I hear lots of mms and yummie's as she enjoys her feast

  5. I just got home from a holiday. I had pecan French toast with a carmelized banana in the hotel restaurant! Yum! This looks similar.
