Bake Apple Cinnamon French Toast
1 1/2 C Kefir
4 egg whites
1 1/2 T honey
3/4 t vanilla (I'll bump this to one full t next time)
1/8 t salt
2 chopped apples (I also threw in one small pear)
1/4 c raisins
3/4 t cinnamon (I'll use more next time)
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 pound whole wheat loaf bread
- Trip crusts off 5 slices of bread and set aside. Cut the crusts and the remaining bread into 1 inch pieces. Toss with apples and raisins.
- Whisk Kefir, egg whites, honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in bowl.
- Coat a 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray. Transfer the bread mixture to the pan. Lay the reserved crustless slices on top. Pour egg mixture evenly over the bread. Press the bread down with the back of a wooden spoon, making sure it is evenly moist. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 40mins.
The directions said to bake for 40 mins covered and then uncovered for another 2o mins. I totally didn't do that, oops. Should've read the directions a bit more carefully! Still it turned out just fine! We ate it with maple syrup on top! I felt like it was missing a kick to it, next time I'll add more spices to see if that does it. Still yummy, and I'll make it again!
