Print French toast with apples

French toast transfigured into a sumptuous dessert


  • for caramel sauce:
  • 50g butter
  • 60g sugar
  • 3 tbsp whipping cream
  • for the batter:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 60g sugar
  • 3 tbsp whipping cream
  • for the apples:
  • 4 apples
  • 30g butter
  • for the toast:
  • 1 baguette
  • 30g butter


  1. First make the sauce: Melt the butter and sugar until golden brown, add the cream carefully and stir well, keep warm.
  2. For the batter: Mix together the batter ingredients and set aside.
  3. For the apples: Peel, half and core the apples. Cut into wedges, lightly colour in 30g of butter in a small frying pan. Do not cook through but transfer to the caramel sauce and finish cooking until tender.
  4. For the toast: Cut the baguette into 4 thick slices on the diagonal (can be a bit stale). Soak the bread slices in the batter mixture and then fry over a fairly high heat in 30g of butter until golden on both sides. Place the toast on a plate with the apples on top and drizzle over the caramel sauce.
  5. Great with custard, cream or both.
