I got the idea from a Denny's® ad, found and modified an apple pie filling recipe, and served it over French toast made just how I like it!

Directions

  1. Place apples in a bowl and drizzle with lemon juice to keep from browning.
  2. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; remove from heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth. Return saucepan to low heat; stir in brown sugar, white sugar, and water until sugars dissolve and mixture is smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium; cook and stir mixture until boiling. Reduce heat to low and add apples. Simmer mixture until apples are cooked but slightly tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat griddle to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Dip bread slices into egg mixture until completely coated.
  5. Grease heated griddle with frozen butter. Cook dipped bread slices on the hot buttered griddle until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining frozen butter and dipped bread. Serve French toast with apple mixture ladled over top.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

As it is written this is pretty good but VERY sweet. If I were to make it again I would cut the sugar by at least half. Also I would add some cinnamon to the apples. The 'syrup' is very thick, much like caramel apples. With a few minor changes this would make for a nice Sunday breakfast.

I began this recipe but was unable to complete it. I followed the directions exactly with the result a goopy mess. I melted the 1/2 cup butter and added the 2 1/2 cups of flour. The recipe states to "stir until smooth"-there was no smooth, just coarse crumbled flour and butter. I added another stick of melted butter, the water, and sugars. That is when I got the goopy mess. The recipe states to boil the butter, water, and sugars-there was no liquid to boil. The goopy mess tasted good but was unable to be made into a syrup for the apples. I was disappointed, I wasted two sticks of butter on this recipe.
