Apple Pie French Toast

January 9, 2014Teresa

Apple Pie French Toast is absolutely mouthwatering. So drool worthy. Unbelievably sensational. Such comfort food. I love this delicious Apple Pie French Toast recipe! A few weeks ago I was in the mood for French toast. I wanted to serve it with sauteed apples and maple syrup rather than just plain with maple syrup. I concocted this delicious recipe that uses lots of spices in the apples, as well as in the French toast batter.

For those who want a sweeter, thicker apple filling you can add sugar and a little flour to the apples while sauteeing. As it was, I was trying to keep it a little more on the healthy side so it is all natural apple and spice flavors instead. It turned out fantastic. The maple syrup and the sweetness from Gala apples is plenty of sweetener.

This is a marvelous special occasion breakfast or brunch recipe. I highly recommend Spicy Apple Pie French Toast for your next holiday or company breakfast. It is utterly amazing. I used homemade bread for the toast in the recipe, you can use any kind of bread. My second favorite option is Sourdough Bread. I also recommend a cinnamon-raisin type bread to bump up the flavors even more. The next time you whip up French toast for breakfast, enjoy it with lots of spicy slabs of apples and maple syrup drizzled over top. Kind of reminiscent of Apple Pie, isn’t it? Yum.

I initially posted this recipe in January 2014. My pictures were really awful. Even brutal. I mean it. I recently remade this recipe (March 2019) for our Friday night care group. I hosted Breakfast for Dinner and this recipe was on the menu. Without exception, every one of our guests LOVED this Apple Pie French Toast recipe. I heard comments over and over about how much they enjoyed this lovely breakfast dish.

I highly recommend it for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or other holiday and company breakfasts. As for me, just serve it to me as Breakfast in Bed. Yes, please!
