This french toast is sooooooo good and is really worth the wait and extra time! I've always used artisan sourdough bread for this and it's really delicious, but I'm sure Texas toast (the thick sliced bread) would work well too. I love making this when I have guests because it's more impressive than having cereal for breakfast :) and because you do all the prep work at night so you just pop it in the oven in the morning, so quick and easy.
Overnight Caramel Apple French Toast
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
2 Tbs. light corn syrup
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
1 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
9 slices sourdough bread, french bread, or Texas Toast bread (3/4" thick)
In small pan cook brown sugar, butter, and syrup until thick, about 5-7 minutes. Pour into ungreased 13X9 baking dish. Arrange apples on top of caramel. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla together. Dip bread slices in egg mixture. Place on top of apples. Pour excess egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake uncovered at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Loosen sides and then invert onto baking sheet or large serving dish. Enjoy!
