Before I begin, I just want to remind you all to please vote for me in the Country Living Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards. The winner will be announced later this week or early next week, so the voting will end on September 15th. I really appreciate all of your help and thank you for taking the time out of your day to vote! The winner will be featured in an issue of Country Living, so it would be a huge step for me and my site!
I usually make at least one big breakfast on the weekends for Kramer and myself, and this weekend may have taken the cake: Peanut Butter Stuffed Apple French Toast. The name really says it all. I used big, thick slices of sweet brioche bread and sandwiched them between a healthy serving of creamy peanut butter. I then dipped the sandwiched brioche in an egg mixture with milk, cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla and cooked them until golden brown. Of course, I had to caramelize some apples in butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and topped the French toast off with the apple mixture. It was decadent and delicious, to say the least. It may be an indulgence, but it’s certainly worth it, especially on a nice Sunday morning with a hot cup of tea or coffee. It’s almost autumn, so it’s time to start finding creative ways to use up all of those apples; I would venture to say that this is one of my favorite ways yet.
