As you see, my friends, I’ve finally caught up with posting some seasonal recipes. First I posted these lovely Spiced Maple Apple Crostini and then this hearty and cozy Butternut Squash Chestnut Coconut Milk Soup. Also, I recently shared the recipe for these amazing Lavender Maple Fresh Toasts, and you all agreed it’s quite a seasonal recipe.
I might be having a kick on french toasts, I think. But please don’t judge me. They are so temptingly delicious. And in my book, they aren’t that outrageously unhealthy. I mean, milk, eggs, and bread – what could be bad about this treat? Disclosure: I might (Or likely might not) have tried another french toasts’ idea and I might (Or unlikely might not) have not succeeded. And I might not (Or most likely might) be trying them again soon!
And if these are Spiced Maple Apple French Toasts, that’s an absolutely legit seasonal recipe full of beautiful fall flavors.
By the way, how does your fall smell and taste? What’s your common flavors going on in the kitchen this beautiful time, besides pumpkins and apples?
Cinnamon? Pumpkin spiced latte? Mulled wine? Or maybe lavender?
For me, any fall is associated with pecans and walnuts, maple syrup, spices (especially, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg), ginger, honey, lemons, chestnuts, and sage. You’re right – all these things are available all year round, but we can not argue with how we feel.
As you see, these Spiced Maple Apple French Toasts combined a lot of listed above things. How good is that, eh?
Moist and tender french toasts served with delicious buttery spiced maple apples and pecans? Well, that sounds like an utterly seasonal treat to me!
But wait. I didn’t mention I incorporated some whiskey in the sauce. I think you don’t have any doubts you need these luscious Spiced Maple Apple French Toasts in your life. Like right now.
