Apple Puff Pastry

   Posted by: innkeeper

(aka French Toast on Steroids )


INGREDIENTS:

  • Thick sliced white bread  (the fluffier the better)
  • Apples ( quartered , peeled and then sliced in thin wedges )
  • Bananas
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Pecans
  • Brown Sugar (demerara)
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt and Pepper


DIRECTIONS:

Butter the  bottom of a deep baking pan. Lay down a thin-sliced layer of apple to cover the bottom of the baking dish. and then scatter thin slices of one banana over that. Lay down a layer of white bread,  trimming edges so they fit tightly and filling empty areas with scraps of bread.Add another layer of thin-sliced apple and then another banana. Sprinkle brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans over the top. In a mixing bowl, mix eggs , milk , salt and pepper and vanilla like you would to make french toast. Pour mixture over the layers of apples bananas and bread , then bake at 350’F for one hour.

It should be just moist , but firm in the middle when you take it out, and it will be puffy, like a souffle. It looks great this way, so have the guests waiting at the table when you bring it out.

Slice into big chunks and serve. ( About one slice of bread per person )

Serve with whipping cream or French Vanilla Yogurt .


Lets face it, I usually serve this with maple syrup roasted three pepper bacon, but perhaps that is just too decadent , and should only be done on the Innchanter.


Enjoy
