I made this for breakfast today. It was really easy, and fast. My husband and 18month old both loved it. I used homemade bread instead of the challah, so I let it soak a little longer. The apple compote was fantastic...I used McIntosh apples which worked fine. Definitely will make it again.

My family LOVED this recipe! I used Gala apples and they worked fine. I got the egg mixture ready, then got the apples mostly done before I started the toast. The apples were nice and soft by the time I was done. Didn't have powdered sugar; didn't need it. We will definitely make this again.

Very good and fairly easy to make.

Delicious recipe! Made this with the Hawaiian bread & it turned out great. We started making the french toast right after we made the compote. For the first few pieces, the apple was a little tough. But by the time we made the last few pieces, the apple was perfectly softened and so yummy with the maple syrup. So when I make this again, I will let the compote sit for a little while. The powdered sugar was a great addition, be sure to desire it if you make this!

A great alternative to regular French Toast. Easy to make. We found the serving size to be correct. We skipped the powdered sugar.

I started the apples, meanwhile I did the egg mixture, and started with the French Toast before the apples were completely finished. That way everything was done at the same time without turning the oven on (saving energy). It tasted very good, we will make again!

Got an absolutely delicious from my husband this morning. Can't wait to try it on my grandchildren. The apples were just right I did sprinkle cinnammon on it rather than powdered sugar. By chopping up the bread and mixing with the apples it would make a great bread pudding. Keep these great recipes coming.

Really great flavors. We used peaches instead of apples because it is July and peaches are everywhere. Served with Prosecco. Will make again will try with persimmons in the fall, yum!
