I actually was given this recipe in a cookbook about 14 years ago. One of those great church lady recipe books with the homey recipes.
It's called McCoy's Mill French Toast. Let me preface by saying I'm not a food blogger, and the day I made this it was rainy and cold, which is perfect for a warm gooey dinner, but not so much for photos. It was just too good not to share!
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick of butter (no margarine here!)
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 2 tart apples, peeled and sliced thick
- 1 loaf French bread, 3/4" slices
- 5 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- nutmeg and cinnamon to taste
Next, spread the bread slices on top of the apples.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla.
Pour the mixture evenly over the bread.
Cover and refrigerate several hours or over night. Bake the French Toast at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon to taste, and serve.
I wish I had tried this recipe sooner! It just takes some planning to pull it off...and the results are so worth it. If you like caramel, apples, and bread, this is definitely a treat to serve your family.
I thought this recipe would be perfect to share with family visiting over this holiday week. Wishing each of you a Happy Thanksgiving. May you count every blessing and realize how good God is to each of us.
I'll be back next week with an explanation, and a new tutorial, too.
