Baked Apple French Toast - Eggy Bread #1

This week will be about 2 french toasts and 1 bread pudding.

So, anyone of you with a loaf of sandwich bread but don't know what to do with it, maybe you can try out this week's recipes to clear stock.

I made this for lunch with my girls. Lydia and I  walloped this up. Lyanne as usual, just gave a sniff and walked away. She doesn't eat bakes with fruit pieces, except fresh fruit pieces in cream filled cakes.

I used to hate cinnamon, but now am madly in love with it.

  1. Hi Wendy, can this be prepared in the night and just warm up in the morning ? Am always out of ideas for school scaks as the food got to be packed early in the morning and can last till recess time in the late afternoon e.g 3.45pm.

  2. I've just finished typing your egg tart recipe because I want to bake it today, then I see this yummy-looking pudding! I love cinnamon too. Didn't llke it at first until I was introduced to cinnamon buns.

  3. great idea for leftover bread and it's a versatile dish for breakfast, lunch, snack, tea... anytime of the day!

  4. look yummy...i think my mother will love it....

  5. Mae,
    Should be fine.
    Or you can prepare everything and put into the fridge and bake in the morning?

    I hope ur mom will love me for this, LOL.

  6. Hi Wendy , this looks very very very very good .... OMG , me too used to hate cinnamon , now I love cinnamon . I am really gonna try this very very soon . ;)

  7. Another great idea for breakfast! Mouth-watering at the mention of apples and cinnamon!

  8. When my kids start to like cinnamon more, then I can try this out..simple and yummy!

  9. wow! that looks amazing and i love my cinnamon. Great idea!

  10. French toast with apples for breakfast definitely is a great start of the day! I like it very much. For me, cinnamon and apple is always the prefect match.

  11. I've always done french toast in a pan, very good idea to bake it, so much less hassle and you can just slice into it like a cake!

  12. This must be super delicious!! You created this yourself?? I know I will loves this.

  13. Abbygail,

    Shu Han,
    Oh, baking french toast is not something new.
    It's not my idea :)

    Sort of. I've seen some other baked french toast and came up with this version myself.
    I didn't invent baked french toast la.

  14. what a good idea of making french toasts! i dont mnd eating this for potlucks even! i think cinnamon is really good in breads, you're not too late to love cinnamons..i see when you will start to love green tea..hehe..

  15. lena,
    Yeah, please hope I'll love mooncakes too, LOL.
    I'm ok for green tea, as in Ocha for drinking.
    I eat la matcha stuff, but I'm not crazy or have the urge to try to make anything with it.

  16. Now I know this is one recipe that I would not pass over, especially for breakfast! Looks so good and it's baked not fried! less oily, less fat? I doubt it huh? lol! What da heck, eat first worry later haha!
