A B & B Style Weekend Breakfast Treat

Sunday Morning Cinnamon French Toast

Having our daughter return home for the weekend is a treat. I know that in a couple years, we will be true empty nesters. So, on the weekends I do as I always have done, make a big Sunday dinner and a sweet treat.

Cinnamon and apple

This Sunday, in honor of Apple Season, I made Cinnamon Apple French Toast.

Cinnamon wafting through the house is one of those warm, comforting fragrances. It is one of my all-time favorite spices.

Cinnamon Apples

Apple Season

I was just reminiscing with a friend and then my husband on those days when the children were younger and we took field trips to the apple farms in North Georgia – such gorgeous beauty in the ride and so much fun! There’s a Pumpkin farm, a state park – with a waterfall, and farm after farm providing the most delicious autumnal treats – the apples.

Cinnamon Apple French Toast 1In honor of our wonderful holiday memories, I decided to treat my family to a B & B style breakfast featuring Cinnamon-Apple French toast.

A few things I insist upon when making French Toast:

♥ hearty bread – traditionally I’ll use Potato Bread or Raisin Cinnamon bread -Brioche makes a marvelous French Toast!

♥ 1/2 and 1/2 mixed with whole milk for the egg batter – the richness makes a wonderfully creamy French Toast

♥ Lots of Cinnamon – both in the apple mixture and in the batter – 1 to 2 tablespoons –

♥ at least 3 eggs – this is a very eggy batter.

♥ melted butter brushed on the griddle just before placing the French Toast on to cook
