    French Toast with Caramelised Apples

    Is there half a stale loaf in your bread bin? Or perhaps you're wondering what to do with that panettone someone gave you for Christmas? If you have a few eggs in the fridge and an apple or two to hand, a delicious pudding is only minutes away.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes to 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 4 minutes to 12 minutes
    • Total time: 27 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    For the caramelised apples:
    40g essential Waitrose unsalted butter
    2 tbsp caster sugar
    3 medium essential Waitrose eating apples, peeled, cored and cut into thin wedges

    For the French toast:
    1 tbsp caster sugar
    3 medium essential Waitrose eggs
    Butter for frying
    4 thick slices, slightly stale white bread, crusts removed, or panettone
    ΒΌ tbsp ground cinnamon


    1. Cook the apples first: melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, scatter in the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the apple slices and cook, turning them over gently, for 5–10 minutes, or until soft and just turning golden. Keep them warm.
    2. Beat the eggs together and pour them into a shallow dish. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add a good knob of butter. Dip the first slice of bread in the egg, making sure it's thoroughly soaked, then lay it in the frying pan. Repeat with the remaining pieces of bread (or cook them in two batches. Fry for 2–3 minutes, or until the bases are golden brown, then flip over and cook for another 2–3 minutes.
    3. Transfer to warmed plates. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and scatter over the hot French toast. Pile the caramelised apples and any toffee-ish pan juices on top, and serve.
