Baked Apple French Toast
In honor of our first baby girl play date with Adele and Story, we made up this Baked Apple French Toast recipe. It was breeze to put together (can be made the night before!) and was the perfect thing to just pop in the oven right before the gals arrived.
I must admit that I wasn’t sure how this was going to come out because my kid couldn’t stop sampling all the ingredients. The proportions were off, but it tasted oh so right. This is now one of his favorite breakfast recipes ever. Now for the recipe…
