Apple Puff Pastry

   Posted by: innkeeper   in Recipes

(aka French Toast on Steroids )


  • 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


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.

    This recipie sounds amazing and we will surely try it out. But where can we buy the maple syrup three pepper
    bacon? Sounds too good to be true 🙂
    Maybe we will have to wait until we can make a trip to the Innchanter. Thanks Shawn.

    I can tell you that the food, the company, the environment and the Inn Chanter are amazing. I had the pleasure of staying a night the third week of July and I couldn’t have imagined a better place to be. The best part was waking up to the smell of Apple Puff Pastry after a night of laughs, a trip to the hot spring and a fantastic nights sleep. Shawn made this for us and it tastes as good as it smells. Of course, he also made (from scratch), whipped cream for the top… I’m going to make it this weekend!! Thanks again for posting this. And thanks again for such a great experience!
