Apple French Toast

For the French toast
1 loaf French bread, sliced 1-inch thick
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
2 large tart apples, peeled and sliced
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

For the syrup
1 cup applesauce
10 oz apple jelly
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves

Combine the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until thick.
Pour the mixture into a 13x9 glass pan. Top the caramel sauce evenly with the apple slices.

In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla. Dip the bread slices into the milk mixture, then lay evenly in the glass pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The following morning remove the pan from the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking. Preheat the oven to 350.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden.

Stir together the syrup ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook until hot.

To serve, place the toast on a plate, top with apples, caramel sauce and syrup.
