Comforting Apple Cinnamon French Toast

As a mother of two, I love nothing more than making a delicious breakfast for my family. This Comforting Apple Cinnamon French Toast has become a family favorite of ours! Every time I make it, my kids can’t wait to dig in.

Since the kids love it so much, I started experimenting and adding some of their favorite ingredients. I added diced apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon to the batter and the result was a delicious and comforting breakfast! The apples give it a subtle sweetness and the cinnamon adds a warm, cozy flavor.

I usually make this recipe on special occasions or on the weekends, when I have a bit more time to make something special. I serve it with fresh fruit, a drizzle of syrup, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. It’s easy to make and it’s always a hit with the family!


  • You can use any type of bread for this recipe, but I prefer thick-cut white bread for the best results.
  • For added flavor, you can add in a pinch of ground ginger or allspice.
  • For a sweeter French toast, you can sprinkle on a bit more cinnamon and sugar.
  • If you don’t have apples on hand, you can use any type of diced fruit, such as bananas or peaches.
