I found this recipe on a recipe card at my grocery store.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 apples peeled and thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons raisins
- 3 tablespoons cranberries (didn’t use, because we don’t like cranberries)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cardamom (we didn’t have any so we substituted cinnamon)
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 4 thick slices of bread (we used 8 regular slices of bread)
- Pinch of nutmeg
- 1/4 cup pistachios (we didn’t use)
- Vanilla yogurt (for topping, but we just used syrup)
1. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples, raisins and cranberries (if using). Cook for 10 min, until apples are golden. Add 2 tablespoons honey and the cardamom (or cinnamon). Cook for 3 min, or until mixture is slightly caramelized. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, the remaining 2 tablespoons of honey and the milk. Dip bread slices into the egg mixture.
3. In a pan, heat the rest of the butter. Place bread slices in the pan. Sprinkle with nutmeg. (If using, add half the pistachios.) Cook 2 or 3 min per side.
4. (If desired, serve with remaining pistachios and yogurt.)
Verdict: This was an okay recipe. With honey as an ingredient, I thought it would be a little sweeter. I didn’t really taste the honey in the recipe. The apple topping was good. It just wasn’t my favourite French toast recipe.
