A fresh apple chunk is tossed in brown sugar and cinnamon and served on top of a simple plate of French toast. They'll add a welcome crunch to every forkful of your breakfast, perched atop soft slices of warm brioche. I'm aware that this apple cinnamon French toast is delectable! This French toast is the perfect treat for any time of day: rich, decadent, cinnamon, syrupy, quick, and oh-so-easy to make! Fall is all about apples, and I'm going to make them the star of the next couple of recipes because I love cooking in season. My French toast is the ideal vehicle for these buttery and sweet cinnamon apples. When cooking, it is critical, to begin with, the right ingredients. I used green apples (granny smith) for this recipe because their tartness and firm texture make them ideal for cooking and baking.
