I came up with this recipe when I was looking for a recipe for French toast that I could make in the slow cooker. Some people will say this is more of a bread pudding, but say what you will. This is delicious!

This was quick and easy. I could not find a decent loaf of cinnamon raisin bread so I substituted 3 french toast bagels. I also substituted a dash of freshly grated nutmeg in place of the allspice. The recipe took much longer than what was directed. Mine took about 4 hours on high. 6 T. butter is unnecessary, I downsized it to 5 T. and butter was seeping out the edges of the casserole. I will lower it to 4 T. next time. Otherwise, the taste was very good and I will make this again. Read More

I tried this yesterday but did not use the apple or allspice. It was very tasty but I didn't like the consistency when I tested it after 2 hours so I cooked it longer and then it got a bit hard. I will try again though. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was super easy and super yummy! I made it as is...but I would say that unless you get a bite with apples or raisins it isn't as sweet as you might expect. I didn't mind that but maybe some would like to drizzle honey or syrup over it? Will definitely make again!! Read More

Excellent easy recipe. I needed something simple for a Christmas Eve Brunch and this fit the bill. I did not use raisins since I don't like them cooked but followed the recipe otherwise. My sister took the small bit of leftovers home for Christmas breakfast. I cut up one loaf of Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl bread instead of tearing it into chunks (huge time saver!). This will go on the menu for my next brunch! Read More

I used 5 cin/raisin bagels instead of the bread. I increased the apple to two the eggs to 7 and the milk to 1 1/2 cups. I also added walnuts. It was ready in about 2 1/2 hours. I will def make it again! Read More

This was good, I increased the apples and we ate with ice cream, more like a bread pudding. Easy to toss in crock pot before making dinner and then have dessert ready. Read More

I was looking for a crock pot French Toast recipe when I found this. It's probably more of a bread pudding, but it tasted great. I used three day old French bread, skipped the raisins, added a teaspoom of cinnamon, and used two Honeycrisp apples. After two hours on high, I put it on low for an additional 10-15 minutes. Delicious, and my family enjoyed it too. Read More

Made this multiple times for brunches, and it’s always a big hit. Have to make it the night before, letting it soak up overnight. I do two apples to fully cover the bottom of the crockpot. Read More

This was sooo delicious! It was my first slow cooker French Toast so I wasn't sure what to expect but it was great. I used Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread and almond milk in place of regular. Read More

We added blackberries used regular bread and doubled the recipe due to guests. It was good but turned out more like bread pudding. Next time we will put the fruit in the middle and on top rather than on the bottom to add more flavor to the bread. Read More
