Prep Time
15 minutes
Cook Time
6 minutes
  • 2 apples
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • 1/2 Cups water
  • 1/3 Cups maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Cup almond milk, original or vanilla (Almond Fresh brand)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons each salt, nutmeg and ginger
  • 4 slices italian, brioche or sourdough bread, sliced 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
  • 11 tablespoon butter
  1. Peel apples if you like. Core and cut into thin wedges. Place in a medium saucepan along with lemon juice and 1/2 cup water. Set over medium to high heat. Cover and simmer gently to soften apples, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain. Add maple syrup and cinnamon to pan. Warm just before using.

  2. Place eggs, Almond Fresh, sugar, salt and spices in a 9 x 3 inch baking dish. Whisk until blended. Add bread. Soak 5 minutes. Turn bread and continue to soak 5 more minutes.

  3. Melt butter in a large non-stick frying pan set over medium-high heat. When butter bubbles, cook bread in two batches without crowding pan. Adjust heat as necessary. This will take 6 to 8 minutes in total, turning part way through, until golden brown on both sides. Keep warm in the oven while cooking second batch, adding more butter if needed. Divide among 4 plates, spooning maple syrup apples over top.
