Ingredients

Apples:

  • 1 Apple, peeled and sliced
  • 90 ml Brown sugar
  • 2 tbls Butter
  • 0.5 ml Vanilla essence
  • 1 ml Cinnamon

Toast:

  • 8 Slices Sunbake Sliced White and/or Brown Bread
  • 2 Eggs
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 2 ml Vanilla
  • 1 tbls Butter or oil for frying
  • 60 ml Mascarpone

Serve with cinnamon sugar and chopped pecan nuts.

Directions

In a small pot over a medium heat, cook apples, sugar and butter until sugar has dissolved and butter has melted. Add vanilla and cinnamon and reduce to simmer – cook 6 – 8 mins. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

In a wide bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla, milk and cinnamon. With the sliced bread on a board, cut a large circle out of each slice with a cookie cutter. Completely submerge one round of bread into the egg mixture at a time. Lift the bread out and allow the excess liquid to drip off. Cook rounds in a large pan over medium heat for about 2 minutes on both sides until lightly browned. Repeat with the remaining bread rounds then drain on paper towel. Make 2 stacks by layering the French toast rounds with mascarpone. Serve immediately topped with apple mixture and nuts and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
