Breakfast Revolution: French Toast with Apples and Cinnamon

Do you find toast too boring for your mornings? Don’t worry, this is French. J I am not sure the recipe is even French, or that French people eat it, but it is a simple breakfast for which you don’t have to go down to the grocery store to buy ingredients. For a twist for your toast (?!?) I added some apples, cooked just a bit with some cinnamon.

For 6 slices a bread prepare a batter with:

2 beaten eggs
1 pinch a salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp 5 spice
125 ml milk
*French toast recipe adapted from

Some butter for frying and some honey/ maple syrup for serving.
Mix all the ingredients and whisk them good, then toss the bread slices in the batter until they absorb all the liquid. In a pan with some butter, fry the bread slices until they turn golden-brown. Then, transfer the slices on a tray and let then cook some more in the oven (for 10-15 minutes) until the outside gets crispy.

When the toast is in the oven you can get on with the apples. In a pan, heat up some vegetable oil with a dust of cinnamon, 5 spices, nutmeg and vanilla sugar. When the oil is heated it will already be infused with those lovely spices. You just need to add the apple, sliced as you prefer it. Make sure to toss it around to get covered in all the spices. Also, the vanilla sugar will caramelize it a little. Cook them as long as you like, I didn’t want to make them all mushy and pureed, so I just let the slices get a bit tender and absorb the flavors (around 3-5 minutes).

Add the apples to the toast and drizzle some honey or maple syrup on top of everything. Great start to make your day sweeter.
