Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 10 servings

This amazing one-dish breakfast tastes like apple pie and French toast combined in one bite


1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
3 tablespoons butter
5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 eggs
3 egg whites
1 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a large, oblong baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Over medium heat warm 1/2 cup sugar in a large nonstick skillet, stirring constantly until sugar melts and begins to turn golden, about 6 minutes. Stir in butter until just combined. Add in apple slices. If mixture becomes stiff, keep stirring until apples soften.
  3. Gradually add maple syrup to mixture, cooking until apples are tender, about 6 minutes. Set mixture aside.
  4. Beat eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  5. Spread apple mixture across the bottom of the baking dish. Arrange bread slices across apple mixture. Spoon egg mixture over bread slices.
  6. For 15 minutes, allow egg mixture to soak into bread.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes and serve while warm.
