Oh, this is SO good! If I could have taken a picture that actually did this justice, you’re mouth would be watering right now, and it wouldn’t be surprising if you jumped up this instant and started cutting up some apples and slicing french bread, regardless of the time of day! :) I’d like to thank my friends Jenny and Anona for making my life happier by sharing this recipe with me. Thanks, ladies. I don’t know how I can ever repay you.
Overnight Apple French Toast
submitted by Erin
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
2 Tb white corn syrup
3 large apples, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 loaf of French bread, sliced thick (you definitely won’t need all of it)
To make the caramel, melt butter in saucepan and then add brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat for 5 minutes, allowing it to boil. Remove from heat and pour into a 9×13 glass pan. (The caramel will harden, but don’t worry, it will turn into a syrup while baking.) Line apples over the caramel in the pan. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, milk and vanilla. Dip the bread into the mixture, coating liberally. Place bread over apples in the pan (you won’t need all the bread, just enough to fill the pan). Sprinkle very generously with cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate overnight so that all the flavors can penetrate. In the morning, heat the oven to 350°, and cook uncovered for 45 minutes.
