vegan mofo, day 24: cinnamon-apple french toast.

sorry, veganmofo, i failed. i thought i could do 20 posts in one month but sadly didn't have the time. so far i've done ten, haha. that's really the best that i can manage though!

yummy breakfast today.

sorry for the bad photo; my camera died right after i took it and then um, i was hungry so i ate the food. :P

i had no cinnamon (woah!) so i had to use allspice. someone (aka my brother) ate all the rest of the delicious french loaf we had so i had to settle for regular sandwich bread. but here is the original recipe.

cinnamon-apple french toast
from vegetarian times

apple topping
4 large tart, firm apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

french toast
2 cups plain or vanilla soymilk
1/2 cup apple butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
12 slices soft-crust French bread, sliced 1/2 inch thick

To make Topping: Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Sauté apples 5 to 7 minutes, or until softened. Reduce heat to medium. Add sugar and cinnamon, and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in lemon juice, and remove from heat.

To make French Toast: Blend soymilk, apple butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in blender until smooth. Pour into shallow bowl.

Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Dip bread slices into batter, coating evenly. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Place 2 slices bread on each plate, and divide topping among servings.

I tried this topping over our pancakes, because we did not purchase any maple syrup this past week. $7 a pop...that was not in our budget.

But it is going on the grocery list this week. Prices be darned.

And the apple topping was grand over our 3 grain pancakes. Sha-Bam!
