The biggest challenge you will have with this recipe is that there is usually never enough. It makes an 11x7-inch pan, and is easily devoured by me and my wife and son. Quick, easy, and oh-so delicious. Top with maple syrup and powdered sugar to your liking.

  • Beat eggs, half-and-half, milk, white sugar, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl; add bread cubes and stir to coat. Let soak until bread is moist, at least 10 minutes.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir apples and brown sugar into the melted butter to moisten the sugar completely; add cinnamon and cook, stirring regularly, until the apples are warmed yet still firm, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir apple mixture into the bread mixture; pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden on top and still somewhat soft in the center, 35 to 45 minutes.

Everyone loved this! I added some raisins to the apple mixture and it turned out great. I also made a maple glaze to serve it with and it was such a hit that I thought I'd share it: Maple Glaze: Roughly equal parts of the following: softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and maple syrup. Then add a spoonful of sour cream or plain yogurt and a pinch of salt and whisk together. Thank you for this recipe! We will definitely make this again. Read More

Great! I've made this numerous times, different ways based on things I had in the fridge. No apples? I used apple sauce. No cream? A full cup of milk is fine. I added nuts and syrup to the mixture as well. Easy to make and adjust. I weekend morning treat! Read More

Didn't peel the apples because they're better for you that way, plus I didn't have time. Increased servings to 12 to use 16oz bread, or about 8 slices. Great with organic oat nut bread! Also used cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to make it more like apple pie, and cut down the butter because you really don't need that much. Will probably cut the sugar just a bit next time, or use molasses instead. Awesome recipe! :-) Read More

I made a triple recipe of this to serve for a large group, and it was a big hit! Not overly sweet, but lots of great flavor. I only made very minor changes, using gluten-free challa instead of the French bread, and Fuji apples instead of Granny Smith (that's what I had on hand) which I chopped in the food processor with the skins on instead of peeling and dicing. I let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour before baking, so that all the liquids could soak into the bread really well. The texture and flavor were fantastic, and I'll be making this again.

Delicious variation on French toast, and certainly easy enough. Definitely use Granny Smith or another firm baking apple that will stand up to skillet and then oven, and don't chop the apple too small or it will get lost. I used half of a 16-oz Italian bread loaf (bakery style, not sliced sandwich loaf). Also I used less cream and increased milk with good results. This made a slightly thin layer in a 9x13 pan so I would not recommend anything larger. For even more deliciousness, next time I will add add walnuts or pecans. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

OMGosh, this was amazing!!!! I prepared the night before and used buttermilk instead of plain milk. I also added everything in the night before. Before putting in the the refrigerator I added an additional cup of buttermilk by pouring over the top. I baked 45 minutes covered and then 15 minutes uncovered. When I pulled from the oven I topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries, served warm with 10X sugar and warm maple syrup. It was eaten before I had a chance try it myself. Read More

I will absolutely make this again!! It's SO delicious! A couple of changes/additions we made: We added more vanilla than it called for and we also sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar. Read More
