Specialty Recipe

Michigan Apple-Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast

Apples are one of West Michigan's largest products. In fact, a favorite activity for many in this area is to visit an apple orchard and taste the bounty of the harvest. Fresh cider and donuts are one of the most popular. We encourage using Ida Red apples which are grown in many of the orchards in Fennville and Allegan. Both towns are just 15 to 25 minutes from our Inn here in Holland. ...Innkeeper Diana Klungel

1 loaf French bread or Texas Toast
3 to 5 apples - it should be a soft apple such as an Ida Red
3-1/2 cups milk (I use 1 cup non-fat vanilla creamer, 1 cup non-fat cream, and 1-1/2 cups milk)
10 eggs
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sugar plus 2 Tablespoons cinnamon plus 1 teaspoon nutmeg

Coat a 9 x 13-inch glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. Slice bread into 1-1/2-inch thick slices and cut off crusts. Place 2 layers of bread in bottom - this should nearly fill the pan. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and sugar. Pour half over bread layers. Peel, core, and slice apples. Place on bread. Cover with remaining milk/egg mixture. Sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Cook for 1 hour at 325 to 350 degrees. Let stand a few minutes before cutting.
