Maple-Apple Topping
French Toast


Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare Maple-Apple Topping: In a small saucepan, combine cooking apple, and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to boiling over medium heat. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until apple is just tender, stirring occasionally. Add pancake syrup or until slightly thickened and heated through. Set aside.

  • To prepare French Toast: In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides (let soak in egg mixture about 1 minute per side).

  • Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Place bread on hot skillet or griddle; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Divide bread slices among four serving plates. Spoon on Maple-Apple Topping and sprinkle with pecans.


Tip: To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
