We’ve taken a classic idea and twisted it around a bit – actually, we’ve turned it upside down! It’s simple, delicious and much healthier than your average French toast. And you don’t even need syrup when it’s done, it’s already unbelievably flavorful.


  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 large sweet apple peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup wter
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 container (2 cups) Mixed Fruit Crunchies*
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons orange zest (optional)
  • 6-10 slices of bread cut 1″ thick (French is the classic choice but any lighter bread will do)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (or soymilk)
  • 3 large eggs and 1 egg white
  • Medium sized casserole dish (Pyrex or ceramic – about 12″ x 9″ x 2″)


  • Melt the butter and sauté the apples until soft
    (about 5 minutes), add the water, syrup, 1/4 t cinnamon,
    1/2 t vanilla and Mixed Fruit Crunchies. Simmer until all the liquid is
    absorbed (about 8 minutes). Put the fruit mixture into
    the bottom of the dish and place the sliced bread on
  • Beat the eggs, remainder of cinnamon, vanilla and orange
    zest. Add the milk and beat together. Pour over the
    bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat
    the oven to 375 degrees. In the morning, remove the
    dish from the refrigerator and allow to get to room
    temperature (about 30 minutes). Uncover, put in the
    over and bake until golden brown and a knife inserted
    comes out clean (about 30 minutes). Let rest for a few
    minutes and then loosen the edges with a knife and use
    spatula to dish up. For a more dramatic presentation,
    place a serving plate on top of the dish and flip over
    to serve.
