Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Strata By Nor

Nor A.M


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!

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Strata By Nor


  1. Butter a casserole dish. In a bowl whisk the milk, vanilla, sugar, eggs, maple Syrup, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon together. Set aside.
  2. Rip bread in to pieces like you would for stuffing. Toss in egg mixture with the apples and raisins. Coat evenly.
  3. Pour in to a casserole dish. Drizzle melted butter over it. Mix 2 TB sugar with a 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Sprinkle over casserole. Dot with pieces of cream cheese. Cover with saran and put in fridge at least 3 hours or over night .
  4. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, or until lightly browned. I drizzle a little more butter over it before serving. Serve right away after removing from oven. Dust with powdered sugar, or serve with syrup.
