OMG Delicious! Caramelized Apple and Cranberry Baked French Toast

What says fall more than crisp apples and cranberries?

And thick, flakey crust bread of course. 

Here's what you'll need:

1 loaf stale French Bread
(I usually slice mine and leave it out for a day or two.)

3 green apples

1 1/4 cups Craisins 

1 stick melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

3 teaspoons cinnamon

6 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

table spoon vanilla

dash of cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350

In a  13X9 glass dish mix melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon

Toss sliced apples and Craisins in with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon till coated.

Place sliced stale bread on top of apples and Craisins. 
(The stale bread doesn't get as mushy in the oven as it would if you used fresh bread.)

Whip eggs, milk, vanilla and dash of cinnamon together.

Pour over bread.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or till bread is golden on top.

Serve warm and top with syrup, Nutella (this is awesome PS), or powdered sugar. 

Or with nothing. The apples and brown sugar make a great "syrup."
