Make the Baked Apples for the French Toast

  1. Wash, peel and slice the apples. If desired, you can chop them into smaller pieces.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, place the apples and about 1/4 cup water and cover with a lid.
  3. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  4. Microwave on high 3-4 minutes. Carefully remove from oven, as steam will be hot. Stir and test for desired firmness. Repeat until apples are cooked.
  5. Allow to cool slightly, approximately 5 minutes.

** Some people like their apples more firm and others enjoy a softer, applesauce-like fruit. Adjust your cooking time as appropriate.

Options Other than Apples

Mix up this Caramel Apple French Toast recipe with other fruit, such as any variety of pears or quince. Apples, pears and quince all belong to the rose family, surprisingly. Other fruits in the same family include apricots, plums, cherries, peaches and raspberries!

The more delicate the fruit, the less cooking time is necessary. Of course, remove any pits or seeds before preparing.

Make the French Toast for the Recipe

  1. Pre-heat a griddle to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter on griddle
  3. In a blender or food processor, grind the graham crackers (about 1 package) to make 1 cup of crumbs. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat 4 eggs until mixed.
  5. Take each slice of bread and dip into egg mixture, then roll in graham cracker crumbs
  6. Grill bread on each side until golden brown
  7. Transfer to a serving plate and place 1/4 cup baked apples on top and drizzle caramel sauce. Sprinkle powdered sugar, if desired.

Now you can enjoy your Caramel Apple French Toast!

      I agree with citigirl, you had me at caramal too. The name and the mouth watering picture is enough to drive anyone to the kitchen for such a delectable treat.

      My first thought was yummy but 'forbidden' because of all the butter and then heavy cream ... both of which I love but my cholesterol is way high. BUT my next thought was Benecol (butter substitute that actually lowers cholesterol.) I could use canned coconut milk in place of cream ... both zero cholesterol.

      So now I can have your french toast and eat it too. :)

      Thanks Steph!
