Apple Topping
4 gala apples peeled and cut into large cubes
4 tablespoos butter
4-6 tablespoons brown sugar
In a cast iron fry pan melt butter, add apples then brown sugar. (mix and toss until well blended) Heat should be between med low and med depending on your stove-top. I start out on medium and cook for a few minutes then turn it down to med-low and finish cooking. Stir every so often to make sure all apples cook and liquid reduces to a caramel like texture this will take around 20-30 minutes so I make this first and keep it warm while making the french toast. Be careful with the heat you do not want to burn the apples.
French Toast

4 slices cottage bread
2 cage free brown eggs
1/2 cup cream
1-3 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Whiped cream for topping
Hot caramel for topping
beat the eggs with the cream then add sugar and vanilla mix well
dip bread into mixture and cook in a fry pan, I use cast iron coated with a equal parts butter and oil, but be careful not to burn the butter cook on both sides. Put on plate butter bread and sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with apples. Drizzle with hot caramel , top with whipped cream and drizzle with more hot caramel.
You can find the hot caramel in the ice cream section of the grocery store or you may make your own if you have time. I started making this recipe with a canned apple I found at Walmart but sometimes those products have a bit of an after taste(funny flavor) so this time I tried making my own apple topping and it was worth it ,the flavor was great. This is a cottage favorite and so far all guests seem to enjoy it. It is a very sweet breakfast item so you may want to add some bacon or sausage and hot coffee or orange juice to help balance the sweetness.
