Apple & Cinnamon French Toast

On Tuesday Cam and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with lost of simple and delicious food and a quiet evening curled up on the couch; happiness! I ducked out of bed early and fixed us up some simple French toast as a treat for breakfast. Really you can’t go wrong with fried bread especially when drizzled in maple syrup with a little side of fresh fruit; it’s the kind of thing breakfast was made for :)

The applesauce gives a lovely fruity sweetness without any added sugar and is teamed with cinnamon, of course, for a truly scrumptious breakfast recipe. Choose nice crusty white bread and be sure to slice it thick for the very best results. We served this quick and simple vegan recipe with maple syrup and a fresh fruit salad. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast the whole family will enjoy or as a special breakfast treat for the very special person in your life.

Preparation time: 15mins
Serves 4

  • 1 small loaf crusty white bread
  • 1 cup non-dairy (or dairy) milk (I used rice milk)
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly grated cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 tbs non-dairy (or dairy) butter or sunflower oil

to serve

  • maple syrup & fresh fruit

Slice the bread thickly and set aside.

Whisk the milk, applesauce, cinnamon and vanilla together in a shallow bowl until well combined.

Heat a little butter in a small preferably non-stick frying pan until it begins to bubble. One piece at a time, dunk the bread into the milk and applesauce mixture allowing the bread to soak up the mixture. Hold the piece of bread over the bowl allowing the excess to drip off and then place in the frying pan.

Fry the bread in the hot butter flipping over after a minute, you want the bread to be nice and golden. Place the cooked toast on a warm serving plate and keep warm in a low oven while you fry the remainder of the toast.

Serve the warm toast with maple syrup and a little fresh fruit for a quick but delicious vegan breakfast recipe.

Yum – looks delicious! I’ve never tried french toast made without eggs – a great idea for my vegan friends. Thanks for sharing and happy anniversary!

Aw happy anniversary! I made a pretty decent vegan french toast once, but nothing stellar so I should try this. I just happened to make a dairy one as well, so maybe we have a French toast connection ;p

I know exactly what to do w/ my cups of applesauce that have been sitting in my cupboard for ages- thank you!

Happy anniversary! I’ve never made French toast without eggs, but I’m certainly excited to try out your recipe.

Hi Trudy,

I tried to make this twice and unfortunately both times I ended up with a pile of mushy bread. Do the slices have be fairly thick or old? I did use a fair amount of butter but it still stuck to the pan..

Thanks for any tips!

Hi Az! Sorry to hear this :-( Try using stale bread with a thick crust (we used a ciabatta) and slice them at least 3cm (1 inch) thick, making sure the pan is nice and hot so they cook quickly. Sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you but, I really hope this is helpful and that you try the toast again!!
