Dessert or breakfast? It’s hard to tell with this rich and indulgent french toast! The perfect treat for a long awaited weekend!
2 medium apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, divided
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
6-8 slices white bread
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
optional: powdered sugar
Add apple slices, brown sugar, and butter in a medium sauce pan. Cook over medium high heat until brown sugar has dissolved and butter has melted. Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 6-8 minutes longer. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly and thicken while you prepare toast.
In a large, wide bowl whisk together eggs, vanilla, milk, and cinnamon. Stir in flour and whisk until smooth. Completely submerge one slice of bread in the mixture, careful to coat both sides. Lift the bread out of the liquid and allow to drip off excess.
Cook toast in a large pan over medium heat 1-2 minutes until lightly browned, then flip and cook other side 1-2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread slices. Generously top toasts with apple-cinnamon mixture. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
