Description

Bourbon caramel coated apples and cinnamon spiked French toast make for a quick and decadent make-ahead breakfast!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Bourbon
  • 3  Large Baking Apples, Cored, Peeled, And Sliced
  • 6 slices Day Old Bread, Sliced Thick
  • 4  Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 dash Nutmeg

Preparation

1. In a small pan melt butter and sugar together. Whisk to combine. Cook until slightly thickened. Add bourbon and whisk again. Continue to cook for about 1 minute.
2. Pour butter mixture into a 9″ x13″ pan. Arrange sliced apples on top.
3. Arrange slices of bread on top of apples.
4. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour mixture over bread.
5. Cover dish and refrigerate overnight (see note below). In the morning, place casserole dish in the oven. Heat to 350ºF. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until apple slices have softened and bread is golden brown.

@Jen- I think rum could be really yummy, it’ll add just the right amount of kick.

@Oliviasmom- You could either just omit the bourbon and add a little extra butter for a thinner texture or replace the bourbon with light corn syrup. It will still be delicious!

Looks fabulous!! I don’t have Bourbon in the house, but I do have rum, do you think that would work?

Pretty good. It tasted like an apple bread pudding.

Tried this over the weekend and it was so wonderful! I think next time I might add pecans but maybe that’s a Texas thing. This was easy to whip up and I served with thick sliced bacon and fresh orange juice for a lovely Sunday breakfast at home. Thanks for sharing.
