How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Peel, core and cut each apple into about 1/4 inch wedges. Place the apple wedges in a large mixing bowl and toss gently with the lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Peel the bananas and slice them crosswise into 3/4-inch thick slices. Add bananas to the apples and toss to coat evenly with lemon juice. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the fruits and toss well to combine.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fruit and saute until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the brown sugar and maple syrup and cook until the sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
  • Pour the contents into a lightly buttered, non-reactive, 9-inch round baking dish. In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs, then stir in the milk and vanilla. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture just to moisten (both sides), then place them over the fruit in a single layer in the pan, making sure to cover the fruit entirely. Pour any leftover egg mexture over the bread. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes. **(This can be prepared up to this point in advance, covered and refrigerated overnight.)**
  • Bake the French Toast, uncovered until the top is golden, 30-35 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Place a serving tray over the pan and CAREFULLY turn them over to unmold the French Toast. Spoon any syrup or fruit left in the pan over the bread and serve at once. =D

    I am saving this one to serve next year on Christmas morning. I have tried strata, but didn't like them. I will bake the bacon at the same time, and it will be a fantastic way to start the day.
