Reviews for Overnight Apple French Toast
"I made this over the weekend and it was a great hit. Followed the recipe. It is a keeper for me."
"we didnt have apple jam, strawberry jam does substitute quite finely."
"Delicious! The brown sugar turns into a wonderful caramel sauce. The bread was very soft, so someone who is picky about things being "soggy" may not enjoy, but I think dipping the bread for less time might fix some of that too. I did use more egg mixture than the recipe called for. I enjoyed it as is."
"Excellent! I was afraid that the toast was going to turn out "mushy" as some of the other recipes I have tried have but that was definitely not the case. I also didn't make the "syrup" as I felt that the caramel sauce and the apples would be plenty sweet. Next time I make this I may leave out the apples and include some pecans or raisins. Yum!"
"My children just love this recipe. I make at camp to free up my morning."
"We absolutley LOVED this recipe! I made 3 dishes of this for a wedding shower brunch.I brought a couple copies of the recipe just in case anyone wanted one. I had to mail out at least a dozen more as I didn't have enought that day. I've made it 3 x's since for different gatherings just this year and this weekend I'm going to make it again for a family brunch for the next day after a family wedding. I can't wait to serve it to people who have not had it. I felt it was an easy recipe. And I always say about myself "I'm not a suzie homemaker". The only thing I would recomend is overlap the slices of apples as they shrink down. This way you will have more apples covering the bottom. Loved it, loved it!! macmarge"
"We were very disappointed with this recipe. It turned out very mushy for me."
