Apple Pie Topping
2 apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Put apples, brown sugar and butter into a pot on the stove over medium heat and mix until the butter melts and the brown sugar dissolves. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Boil for about 2 minutes and then reduce to a simmer while you cook the toast. I will sometimes have this on the stove for an hour.
In a pie pan or tupperware container big enough to fit a piece of bread, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. Completely submerge a slice of bread in the mixture and coat both sides. Put the bread on a griddle or large frying pan on the stove. Sprinkle one side with cinnamon, flip over and sprinkle cinnamon on the other side. Cook until lightly browned on both sides.
Pour apple pie mixture over toast and serve. You can also sprinkle it with icing sugar.
This makes about 8-9 slices of french toast.
I sometimes just sort of wing the egg/milk mixture to get more or less pieces of toast which is something you learn with experience making French toast.
