Reviews for French Toast with Apple Topping
"Loved this recipe! And my husband couldn't stop eating it and asked that next time I double it. It was really easy to put together and will become a regular for weekend brunch. I also made it for myself ahead of time and just heated up a couple slices of the french toast and a scoop of the apples - delicious!"
"This recipe was okay. Wouldn't make it again, but overall, it was easy to make."
"Fantastic. Make twice as much apple topping, it is delicious and will go quickly. This apple topping could be used on a dessert as well. Yummy, it'll be hard to eat french toast any other way!"
"This is one of my weekly breakfast recipes that the whole family enjoys. I actually substitute the brown sugar and use Splenda brown sugar so that it has even less sugar content and use Skim milk instead of 2%. It is so delicious!!"
"This is a very tasty topping to go with traditional french toast, and it was easy to make."
"very good indeed!"
