Baked Apple French Toast

I hostessed a ladies' prayer brunch this morning. This "Baked apple french toast" is what I made to eat. The recipe is from Taste of Home. (I added some pears from my tree to put in with the apples. I also made my own pie filling rather than store-bought canned). It was SO delicious. Everyone loved it, and I will definitely be making this again in the future! Here's the recipe:
  • Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min.
20 35 55
  • 20 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup


  • Arrange 10 slices of bread in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spread with pie filling; top with remaining bread. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (Can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. Thaw in refrigerator the night before baking.)
  • Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Meanwhile, place brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans and corn syrup. Sprinkle over French toast.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Yield: 10 servings.
