Dulce de Leche French Toast with Apples

4 large eggs
3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 thick slices bread (Challah is good)
2 tablespoons butter, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup dulce de leche
4 apples

Whisk together milk, eggs, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon sugar in large bowl.

Lay bread slices in a 9 by 13 glass baking dish.

Pour mixture over bread, cover and and refrigerate overnight.

To cook:

Heat butter in a large pan over medium high heat.

Preheat oven to 350° F. and bring bread to room temperature.

Slice apples thinly and toss with butter and remaining tablespoon sugar. Place above bread slices.

Bake bread and apples on middle oven rack, uncovered, until bread is puffy and golden, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Drizzle with dulce de leche and serve immediately.


  1. Mmmm, sounds so indulgent! I haven't made real French Toast in awhile, and now I'm craving some!

  2. You had me at 'Dulce'. This looks like a great twist on french toast and worthy of trying.
