Serves: 4
Ingredients
For the French Toast
  • 8 thick slices of brioche bread
  • 6-8 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
For the Apples
  • 2 large apples, thinly sliced (I left the skins on mine for color, but you can peel them if you like)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • juice of half a lemon
Instructions
  1. First, start making your apples, as they will take longer. Heat a pan over medium heat, then add in your thinly slices apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and juice of half a lemon. Cook for 10-12 minutes, until caramelized, stirring often so they don't burn.
  2. Slice your bread (if you need to) and spread the peanut butter equally among 4 of the slices. Place another piece of bread on top of each and set aside.Beat together your eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and cardamom. Dip your bread in the mixture on all sides, then place in a hot pan over medium heat, greased with either non-stick spray or butter. Cook on each side for 5-8 minutes, until golden. You can also use tongs to stand the bread up on all sides so that it cooks evenly. Serve with the caramelized apples and lots of maple syrup.
