Cinnamon-Raisin Apple French Toast Bake

*This is the 9th of of 10 Crock Pot recipes I am trying in January and February as part of the Peanut Butter Fingers Blog Crock Pot Challenge*

I am not the breakfast chef in our family.  I burn pancakes and my eggs usually turn out rubbery and tasteless.  As much as I’ve learned to master all the other meals of the day, breakfast is often an epic fail. It’s very sad.

Luckily, my hubby is an expert in pancakes, waffles and eggs.  He very sweetly makes me pancakes or waffles every weekend even we he doesn’t want them at all.  He makes eggs in all styles that are better than any restaurant I’ve ever tried.  Isn’t it nice how that worked out?

Well, all this may change after I made this last Crock Pot recipe.  This is a no fail breakfast or brunch dish that even I got right on the first try.  The hubs may start asking me to switch weekends to cook breakfast… oh no…..

    That sounds delicious & easy enough for even me to make! I think I may use almond milk to eliminate the dairy. Also, try conventional, stove top French toast using challah bread. It’s wonderful also!

    I officially want to haul off and make this RIGHT NOW. This looks delicious! I love French toast. The challenge has made me want to make everything in the crock pot lately. Once you crock pot cook, it’s like every recipe can be converted to crock pot style. Love it! I’ll have to try this one in the future 🙂

    I do something very similar, especially on Thanksgiving or Christmas when I want an easy, quick breakfast before the ‘real’ cooking begins. One change I’ve made, I use EGG NOG instead of milk. You can also cut down or eliminate the cinnamon and vanilla (to taste, of course). Since that’s the only time of the year you can buy egg nog, and since my family thinks it’s just part of the holidays, this always goes over good. It’s almost a ‘bread pudding’ recipe, too.
