Reviews for Overnight Apple French Toast
"A long-time favorite in our family of 8! Doesn't need the syrup as it's sweet & moist without it. All it needs is sausage links, bacon, or ham to make it a hearty breakfast!"
"I used a few more bread slices to fill the pan. We liked the consistency - crunchy on the edges, soft in the middle. I didn't make the sauce, it was sweet enough without it."
"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."
