Stages of cooking

  1. Prepare the filling: wash the apple and cut it into small cubes, removing the core. Combine butter, cinnamon, apples and sugar in a pan. Mix. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Apples should darken a little and become soft.

History of French Toast with Apple Filling

The origins of French toast date back to ancient Rome, where it was known as "panem dulcis" or sweet bread. The French adopted the recipe in the 17th century and called it "pain perdu" or lost bread, as it was a way to use up stale bread. Over time, the recipe evolved and variations such as stuffed and sweet fillings were added. The addition of apples as a filling is a modern twist on this classic dish.

Tips and Tricks for French Toast with Apple Filling Recipe

  1. Use thick slices of bread to hold the filling and prevent it from spilling out when cooking.
  2. Let the bread absorb the milk-egg mixture for a few minutes, so it is evenly soaked.
  3. Use a non-stick pan and a small amount of oil to prevent the toast from sticking.
  4. When cooking the apple filling, stir occasionally to prevent burning and ensure even cooking.

Tips for presenting the dish

  1. Serve on a platter with a generous drizzle of caramel cinnamon sauce.
  2. Add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra indulgence.
  3. Garnish with fresh fruit, such as sliced apples or berries, to add color and freshness to the dish.
