  • 1 baguette sliced diagonally in 1" slices, approximately 12-16 slices
  • cups whole milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp apple butter divided
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 4 tbsp salted butter
  • Cinnamon syrup for serving
  • Cinnamon for serving
  • 1 apple thinly sliced for serving
  • ¼ cup aged white cheddar crumbled, for serving

Cinnamon Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks


  1. Whisk milk, eggs, vanilla, 2 tbsp of apple butter and 1 tsp of cinnamon in large shallow bowl to combine.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip baguette slices a few at a time into egg mixture to coat. Working in batches, add 4-6 slices to the skillet. Cook until bottoms are deep brown, 2 to 3 minutes, flip and repeat on the other side, adding more butter as needed.
  3. Keep cooked French toast warm in a 250-degree Fahrenheit oven until all baguette slices have been cooked.
  4. Divide baguette slices among plates and smear each slice with a thin layer of remaining apple butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon, drizzle with cinnamon syrup and top with crumbled aged white cheddar and apple slices.

Cinnamon Syrup

  1. Combine sugar, water, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let sit at room temperature overnight.

  2. Remove cinnamon sticks and store syrup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
