Reviews for Apple-Stuffed French Toast Bake
"This is an awesome recipe I made it for my work place monthly meeting and they loved it"
"Delicious combination of flavors"
"We had relatives stay with us and they had six children...I made this recipe the first morning they were here and they requested I make it for breakfast the next morning. I love this recipe and will use it frequently. I did bake it at 375 for 45 minutes and it helped the bottom layer to not be soggy. We have leftovers and now that our company has left...my husband and I are going to fight over who gets them for breakfast tomorrow morning!"
"I tried this recipe two days ago and it turned out really good. My friends and family loved it. Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"Did anyone have problems with the bottom slices being REALLY soggy? Ihad to bake it twice as long and flip it halfway to get it so it wasn't so soggy."
"This French Toast was amazing even without the nuts. Since my mom is allergic i had to make it without. But even without it is so flavorful."
"This was served on Christmas morning for the family 2011. It was a big hit!!"
"Made for my office co-workers for a Christmas brunch. I had several requests for the recipe. My syrup didn't turn out quite right, though--evidently I cooked it too long as it turned into candy upon cooling. It would be good to have a little more direction on how long to cook, whether to boil, etc. But it was delicious even without the syrup!"
"Can't wait to try these!"
