This is great to have in the fridge to dress up morning pancakes, waffles or French toast. Or just spread it on toast. Look for local honey, which has wonderful flavor.The casserole needs to be refrigerated overnight, so plan ahead. (My hubby wasn't too thrilled with that. He thought he would have it sooner! Oh, well). I didn't make the honey, but had it as is. It's delicious.Source unknown

How to Make Baked Cinnamon Apple French Toast(TNT)

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/4 inch thick slices. Heat butter in a sauté pan over medium heat til it starts to foam. Add apples and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Lightly toast the bread. Cut toast slices in half to make triangles. Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, and arrange bread in two rows, overlapping in the dish. Beat eggs in medium bowl;, then whisk in the sugar, milk and vanilla to make a custard. Pour custard over bread triangles and spoon apples over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day, heat oven to 350. Uncover baking dish and bake for 50 to 60 minutes til custard is set and doesn’t shimmy when you shake the pan. It will puff up and brown slightly. Remove from oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve in squares or large spoonfuls, with honey butter.
    Honey Butter:
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, 1 stick
    1 pinch salt
    1 Tbsp. honey
    In a bowl, beat butter with wooden spoon. Then mix in the salt and honey. Pack the honey butter into ramekins and serve it at room temperature; or warm it in a small pan over low heat or in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until melted and serve it hot.
