    This is pretty much one of the best sweet french toast bakes I have ever made. It is wonderfully crunchy on top, creamy in the middle with just a hint of toffee, tart apples and a custard like consistency. Absolutely amazing! The syrup just adds another little bit of apple flavor..


    For the French Toast:
    8 cups French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
    3 red apples, peeled and chopped (I used Granny Smith)
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup apple juice
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
    1/2 cup English toffee bits
    6 eggs
    1 cup milk

    For the Apple Syrup:
    1 cup sugar
    1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 cups apple juice
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    5 tablespoons butter


    For the French Toast:

    Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan; top with apples. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugars, apple juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth; stir in toffee bits. Spread over apples. Top with remaining bread cubes.

    In another large bowl, beat the eggs, milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well blended; pour over bread. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

    Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

    While the French toast is baking, prepare the syrup.

    For the Apple Syrup:

    In a medium-size saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple juice and lemon juice; heat to a boil, whisking constantly. Boil for 1 minutes, then stir in butter. Serve over warm Apple Toffee French Toast Bake.
