Apple Caramel French Toast Overnight Bake
Sunday mornings are a big deal at my house. We have several of the neighbors come over with their kids and we host breakfast. It is affectionately known as Pancake Sunday. The kids have their pancakes the same way each Sunday – loaded with chocolate chips and mini M&Ms 🙂 Sugar rush anyone?? While us adults do like variety, so when we take a break from pancakes and eggs, I like to get a bit creative. Never complicated though, as Sunday mornings I can have up to 20 people at my table, just a little creative 🙂
I like this Apple Caramel French Toast Recipe for a few reasons:
- I love apples
- I make it the day before, so in the morning all I have to do is toss it in the oven and then I can get back to talking with my friends and family
- It’s easy to make
- It’s delicious
The process of making this breakfast recipe is actually pretty similar to my Breakfast Strata, but this is a sweet version. Instead of cooking sausage, you are cooking the apples 🙂
And once the apples are cooked, you pour the egg/bread mixture on the bottom of a baking dish, then pour on those amazing apples!

- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 bags of tart Crunch Pak Sliced Apples
- ⅔ cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 3/4 loaf of bakery bread – I used sourdough
- 6 large eggs
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in a large bowl
- Rip the bread into small pieces, about 2 in x 2 in, and drop the pieces into the bowl with the egg mixture. Set the bowl aside.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan and add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
- Cook on medium heat until apples are slightly softened.
- Pour the bread/egg mixture into a 9×13 pan or similar baking dish.
- Top with the apple mixture
- Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Bake covered for 35 minutes
- Remove foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until bread is firm.
