Instead let’s talk about this Apple Cheesecake French Toast with Maple Cider Syrup. I absolutely love any sort of sweet breakfast treat. Give me a Saturday morning, a big sweet breakfast, a nice fall breeze and I am a happy girl. I will admit that this is not a weekday sort of breakfast and does take a little bit of extra effort but it is SO worth it!

This post is extra special because today I am throwing a virtual baby shower for my sweet blogging buddy; Meg from With Salt and Wit! (Surprise Meg!!!!)

She is expecting her first baby at the end of October and I couldn’t be more excited for her! She has been an amazing friend and I am so happy that we get to do this blogging thing together! Meg has answered countless questions for me and is always more than willing to help me with ANYTHING. I don’t know what I would do without her. So I have joined up with some awesome bloggers and we have put together a bunch of yummy fall recipes in celebration of her baby boy! Be sure to stop by her blog for some delicious recipes and to tell her congratulations!

I don’t even know where to start with this breakfast, I love every component. The cinnamon brioche french toast is light and fluffy with the perfect amount of sweetness. The cheesecake apple filling is full of spiced apples, a simple cream cheese spread that keeps it together and then the whole dish is topped with a homemade maple cider syrup. This is a MUST make as a special weekend breakfast! I highly recommend using a thick bread. If you don’t use brioche than challah bread would be a great substitute.

Hope you all have a beautiful weekend and be sure to check out all the links below from my fellow blogging friends for more sweet and savory fall recipes!

    Ok, I didn’t look but I really wanted too. Ha. My whole first year of food photography is pretty bad! But THIS french toast is certainly the opposite of bad. Looks amazing. Thanks for all your hard working organizing Megan’s shower. So glad we can celebrate!
