Caramel Apple Stuffed French Toast
I’m not much of a morning person, yeah I just admitted that. I’m definitely one of those ‘needs coffee to survive type of mom. My family knows the only way to coerce me out of bed at odd hours of the morning, is to feed me good food and a strong cup of coffee. Thank goodness we have a Keurig!
It makes my coffee morning ritual oh so easy. When I was little my mom would sometimes surprise my brother and me with French Toast on Saturday mornings. These were rare weekend occurrences but it was none the less special to my brother and me.
The Best Stuffed French Toast Recipe
This simple recipe is my mother’s, and I have followed it since I was 15 years old. The one spin I put on her recipe is that I used Challah bread instead of the usual Wonder bread she loved so much. Back when we used to have a Wonder Bread store, do yall remember those? I actually have very fond memories of walking into the store and smelling nothing but goodness in the air.
Picking out the snacks was the hardest since we were only allowed to pick a few at a time per visit. I chose cupcakes every time. I had a soft spot for those yellow cupcakes and of course, those chocolate cream-filled ones.
Oh goodness, I want a cupcake now. I pumped up her recipe and added some delicious butterscotch caramel apples. This is so easy to make yet so delicious and decadent. Top it with some powdered sugar and maple syrup.

How to make the Caramel Apple Filing
To make the easy caramel filling, you will need to first start by peeling and cutting up the apples. I prefer to use larger chunks of apples, however you can cut them up smaller or larger than I have them featured in the photos above.
In a saucepan combine the butterscotch caramel sauce and the sliced apples. Cook on low as directed on the recipe card, or until the consistency of the apples is to your liking. Once it is fully cooked, set the sauce pan aside for the sauce to thicken.
How to make stuffed french toast
In a casserole dish crack the eggs, add cinnamon, milk and combine using a whisk. A helpful tip with making the French toast batter is to stir it often. This helps prevent the cinnamon from clumping together and helps incorporate it throughout the batter.
How to cook French Toast
In a cast-iron pan or in a large pan insert 1 tablespoon of butter and let it melt until it starts to foam. You will need to repeat this step for every single new pan of French toast you will cook. You can pull back on the butter or add more if you like.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes for each side, until they are cooked to your liking. I like to make sure my have a lot of brown color all over them.
Once you have prepared all of the French toast slices as directed on the recipe card. You can now layer the french toast by placing 1 slice on a plate, then add the caramel apples, then top with another french toast slice. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately. Enjoy!
