I got the idea from a Denny's® ad, found and modified an apple pie filling recipe, and served it over French toast made just how I like it!

Instructions Checklist
  • Place apples in a bowl and drizzle with lemon juice to keep from browning.

  • Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; remove from heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth. Return saucepan to low heat; stir in brown sugar, white sugar, and water until sugars dissolve and mixture is smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium; cook and stir mixture until boiling. Reduce heat to low and add apples. Simmer mixture until apples are cooked but slightly tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Preheat griddle to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Dip bread slices into egg mixture until completely coated.

  • Grease heated griddle with frozen butter. Cook dipped bread slices on the hot buttered griddle until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining frozen butter and dipped bread. Serve French toast with apple mixture ladled over top.

Cook's Note:

For varied textures, use more than one kind of apple. Depending on what variety of apple you use, time for cooking will differ.

As it is written this is pretty good but VERY sweet. If I were to make it again I would cut the sugar by at least half. Also I would add some cinnamon to the apples. The 'syrup' is very thick much like caramel apples. With a few minor changes this would make for a nice Sunday breakfast. Read More

We all loved it! Very sweet though. I used a small amount to make it perfect of my french toast. My greedy sister and mother used the whole rest of the sauce for theirs. Which was suppose to be used for another 4 servings! Needless to say we all liked it Read More
