Caramel Apple French Toast

Caramel Apple French Toast

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons white Karo syrup
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Delicious apples -- peeled/cored/sliced
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 12 slices Texas Toast or 1-inch thick cut french bread
  • 12 ounces cream cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream or half and half cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (or 1 teaspoon cinnamon + 1 teaspoon nutmeg)
Grease generously 9"x13" glass pan.

Combine sugar, syrup, butter and boil in pan for one minute. Pour and spread over bottom of greased 9x13 pan. (Sprinkle with pecans.)

Combine apples, water, cinnamon, sugar, lemon juice and cook, stirring constantly, in pan over medium heat just until apples begin to soften. Add corn starch and continue to stir until thickened. Remove from heat.

Thickly spread cream cheese over 6 slices of bread and place in single layer to cover caramel mixture in 9x13 pan (cream cheese side up). Distribute apple mixture over bread/cream cheese layer. Cover with remaining 6 slices of bread.

Blend together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and gently pour over bread layers in 9x13 pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight (not more than 24 hours).

Remove cover and bake in 350 degree oven 60 minutes until brown and slightly puffy. Immediately invert each serving on plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with pecans, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Fresh pears or peaches may be substituted for apples with cinnamon/nutmeg seasoning preferred. Fresh raspberries or strawberries may also be sprinkled over apple mixture stuffing for additional color and flavor.

This was a great breakfast. I used eggbeaters instead, and there was no difference in taste. Rave reviews. I would use double the amount of apples next time for a more fruity taste.

Great recipe! I've must of made it 15 times for friends and family. It's awesome when made exactly as the recipe states, but I will admit I sometimes take shortcuts. I'm sure some will cringe when I say this, but I've used can apple pie filling for the apple mixture. The whole recipe is so yummy!!!!
