Cinnamon-Apple French Toast

Cinnamon-Apple French Toast

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

Tart apples like Pippin, Empire, Winesap, and Granny Smith retain their shapes when cooked, so choose them for this recipe.
Apple Topping
  • 4 large tart, firm apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 3 Tbs. sugar
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
French Toast
  • 2 cups plain or vanilla soymilk
  • ½ cup apple butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 12 slices soft-crust French bread, sliced ½-inch-thick

1. To make Topping: Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Sauté apples 5 to 7 minutes, or until softened. Reduce heat to medium. Add sugar and cinnamon, and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in lemon juice, and remove from heat.

2. To make French Toast: Blend soymilk, apple butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt in blender until smooth. Pour into shallow bowl.

3. Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Dip bread slices into batter, coating evenly. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Place 2 slices bread on each plate, and divide topping among servings.

My twin 2 year olds loved these! I served the apples seperate from the toast, though. You know toddlers!

Is french bread vegan? Most breads contain egg and milk.

Delicious! I actually burned my apples, on accident, you know, with two little ones running around it's easy to do that. So we sliced peaches for on top with some agave nectar. It was a hit.

I bought a loaf of "lemon white chocolate" bread and used it for the french toast - decadent!

My daughter made this for me and it was wonderful I wasn't a vegetarian at the time.

Dianna - 2010-01-01 13:49:19 family has forced me to make this THREE TIMES in just 2 weeks...a couple of recommendations: Increase cinnamon according to your preference...adds to the flavour...also, i found that using vanilla almond milk was best (i tried rice and soy) and the most important piece of advice: USE MULTIGRAIN BREAD! We used organic multi grain baked at our local bakery...anything with plenty of def. made the recipe for us...also...i would recommend using more apples...YUMMMYYYY
