Ingredients

French Toast Bites

  • 4 cups bread 1 inch cubes
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1-3 tbsp butter

Apple Spice Sugar Coating

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice

Apple Pie Dipping Sauce

  • 1 medium sized apple peeled, cored and grated
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup water

Instructions

  • Make the French Toast Bites first:
  • Place eggs, milk, vanilla extract and sugar into a shallow bowl and beat lightly until combined.
  • Place 1/2 tbsp of butter into a medium sized skillet and place on a medium heat.
  • While the pan is heating up, dunk 8-10 of your bread cubes into the milk/egg mixture. Make sure you get all sides, but make sure it's a quick dunk and you don't leave it in there for ages as the bread will go soggy.
  • Once the pan is hot, place the bread cubes into the pan and fry until golden, 20-30 seconds per side.
  • Place a couple of sheets of kitchen towels on a large plate and transfer the cooked French Toast bites to the plate to cool.
  • Repeat this process, doing 8-10 bread cubes at a time until you have exhausted your supplies. As you remove batches, place another 1/2 tbsp of butter into the pan to heat. Be careful not to brown the butter, if you think the pan is getting too hot, turn the heat down.
  • Leave the French toast bites to cool for around 10-15 minutes.
  • Make the sugar coating next:
  • Place white sugar and spices into a shallow bowl and mix gently until well combined and there are no lumps of spices. Leave to one side.
  • Make the Apple Pie dipping sauce:
  • Place the grated apple, spices, brown sugar, salt and cornstarch into a medium sized saucepan and stir until the apples are coated in the dry mixture.
  • Add in the water and place over a low-medium heat.
  • Bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the mixture is thickened and the apple is tender.
  • Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes, and then either using a hand blender or mini food processor, blitz the dipping sauce until smooth.
