Sorry this is so late and that I was MIA yesterday.  The life of an accountant who doesn’t remember to plan ahead her posts… I got home so late last night, poor Don had to eat pizza rolls for dinner!  But, I am sharing this delicious recipe for baked apple French toast.  You can serve this with powdered sugar like I did or with the optional crumbly topping.  Enjoy!

There are many versions of baked apple French toast on the Internet, but most of them require you to make the dish ahead and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  It kinda defeats the speediness of French toast.  So, I created my own version that requires just a short time baking in the oven.
