I love French toast. This is a lazy way of making a fruit filled French toast. No standing in front of a griddle making 2 pieces at a time. I totally changed a recipe by adding in apples, raisins, syrup, and butter, raisin bread, and changed some measurements.
By turning the recipe around. It added a lot more flavor to a simple dish. It is full of apples, and cinnamon, and very delicious. Enjoy all!
