Very yummy and moist french toast - We didn't even need any butter! I had cinnamon applesauce, so we used that, and I substituted pumpkin pie spice for plain ground cinnamon, which was very tasty. I must agree that this recipe makes more than six slices of french toast - I think I made 10 slices before running out of liquid, so plan accordingly. Also, be aware that the high sugar content of the batter makes it susceptible to burning, so keep a very close eye on the cooking toast; I found that medium heat worked best for me. Enjoy! Read More

Very quick and easy to prepare. The taste was nice but the bread was too soggy so next time I would cook it longer and use less cinnamon (about 1/2 what the recipe calls for). Read More

This was pretty good! I read over some suggestions & reduced the milk to 1/2 cup & that worked nicely. I used lite cinnamon applesauce & had no problem with the bread being soggy. Next time I'm going to increase the cinnamon as the taste wasn't as strong as I prefer. I also used Splenda & whole wheat bread. Overall a great recipe & thank you! Read More

My family loved this recipe. I would never make french toast the old fashion way again. My 2 year hardly took a breath between bites! I used cinnamon applesauce because I had no cinnamon and used 1/2 a cup of milk. I had no mixture left. They were a LITTLE "soggy" but not enough to make a difference. This recipe is a great way to get your kids to eat whole wheat bread too. I also sprinkled some allspice on top. I would recommend this recipe. Read More

wow this french toast is just fantastic! i followed the recipe as written using natural applesauce & thick cut day old challah bread. i like to fry mine until well browned then put it on a rack in a 250 degree oven for 5 - 10 minutes. that helps to firm it up a bit. we served this with maple syrup & sauteed apples. what a treat! thank you joan i wish i'd found this recipe earlier. you should've put it under the brunch category instead of in the bread category. thanks again!

Mine were also very soggy and not very good. I was so hungry that i did eat one of the 2 pieces though. I also used the apple sauce for my syrup. Read More

made this for dinner with some quick-browned sausage patties and it was perfect -- not soggy and just the right amount of dipping mixture. the only thing i changed is that i added a bit of nutmeg to the egg mixture. wonderful! Read More
