If you’ve been reading my blog at all this past month, you know that I love putting cranberries in my dishes. I’m not sure why it’s a current obsession, but I think they add an extra punch of flavor that’s delicious. Here are a few of the other cranberry dishes I’ve posted: Cranberry Apple Grilled Cheese SandwichCranberry Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad, and Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. This morning I was once again craving cranberry and apple, but I also had part of a loaf of challah bread that needed to be used up. I paused for a moment before deciding on making French Toast with Cinnamon Cranberry Apple Topping. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

Here are the Ingredients I used:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavoring
  • 1 tsp cinnamon for the egg wash
  • 3 pieces of bread
  • 1 small apple
  • 1/3 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon for the apple topping
  • syrup (if desired)

Here’s what I did:


I mixed the eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon together, dipped the bread in it, and cooked the bread until golden brown.


While the toast was cooking, I cut up the apple into very thin slices. After the toast was done cooking, I put it in the microwave to keep it warm, and cooked the apples until they were soft.


I put the apples and cranberries on top, poured a little syrup, and enjoyed! It was delicious and was the perfect start to my morning. And of course the cranberries didn’t disappoint! Enjoy!

Now it’s your turn to share! What’s your favorite thing to put on top of french toast? Do you have a typical Saturday morning breakfast or routine?
