French Toast with Stewed Apples

I love to make this breakfast/brunch on weekends when I have a bit more time. You can exchange the apples for banana or use fruit loaf instead of normal bread for a bit of variety.

My apples took nearly 10 minutes to cook, (and they weren't overcooked), so plan the rest of your meal accordingly. The slurry resulted in a "cream" rather than a sauce, so I did have to add quite a bit more apple juice to thin to the right consistency. On the positive side, this is a really nice option to french toast loaded with calorie-laden syrup. The apples give this a really fresh taste. We enjoyed! - 18 May 2013
