French Toast is traditionally not very difficult to make but requires a little attention during the cooking. In this recipe, the prep is very minimal as all the ingredients go into one pan at the same time, and because the French Toast is baked instead of fried, you can walk away from it while the oven works its magic. In this recipe, I’ve used apple pie spice to give it a delicious aroma, both during and after the cooking. With the addition of a little icing sugar, it’s all you need for a healthy, delicious breakfast.
- 6 slices of multi-grain bread, halved
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup apple sauce
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon + of apple pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves)
- Icing sugar to taste
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, apple sauce, vanilla and spices. Whisk until fluffy. Pour 1/3 of the egg mixture into the bottom of a large baking dish. Place bread slices over top and press down to absorb. Pour the remaining 2/3 of the egg mixture over top and place into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes until the egg is set and the top of the french toast is lightly browned. Using a spatula, cut the egg around each slice of toast and remove from the pan. Serve with a sprinkle of the apple pie spice and icing sugar or use your favorite syrup.
