6 large eggs
4 1/2-inch-thick slices brioche bread
2 tablespoons (1/4 sti unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup crème fraîche
1/2 cup sugar; for Caramelized Apples
3 tablespoons unsalted butter; for Caramelized Apples
4 apples (about 1 1/4 lbs total) Peeled,; pitted, each cut into 8 wedges for Caramelized Apples

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



To prepare the caramelized Apples: Combine the sugar and 1/4 cup of water in a large heavy sauté pan over medium heat.

Stir until the sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to a simmer.

Allow the syrup to boil over medium-high heat without stirring, brushing down the sides of the pan and swirling the pan occasionally to ensure it cooks evenly, for about 6 minutes, or until it begins to turn golden brown.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the apples and butter and swirl until the butter melts.

Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, or until the apples are just tender.

Meanwhile, to make the French toast: Using a fork, beat the eggs in a 13x9 baking dish to blend.

Place the slices of brioche in the eggs and let stand for 5 minutes, or until the eggs are absorbed, turning the brioche slices once.

Stir the sugar and cinnamon on a large plate; set aside.

Melt the butter on a heavy large griddle pan over medium heat.

Add the brioche slices to the hot pan and cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown on the outside and heated through. Immediately place the hot French toast in the cinnamon-sugar and turn to coat completely.

Divide the French toast among 4 serving plates.

Spoon the apples over the French toast, and drizzle the caramel sauce from the pan over the apples and around the French toast.

Top with a dollop of crème fraîche and serve immediately
