Apple Toast

Apple Toast

Searching for a quick and easy recipe containing your leftover apples? Then I got you covered with this amazingly simple and delicous apple toast recipe which saved me once already!

I for my part really wanted to make some apple roses but noticed that the puff pastry was already a goner. So I was a little bit lost with my already thinly cut slices at 11 pm. To find a solution, I scrolled through the internet to find some nice ideas on what to do now. A lot of them contained pre-made dough or a long chill time which I hadn’t at my hand at that moment.

Which is why I found myself super lucky finding this base recipe for my nice apple toasts. I made some adjustments to the recipe, and I’ll give you some tips on how you can turn this delicious lifesaver in a full on dessert.

Introduction

This recipe for apple toast combines the full sweet flavor of baked apples while having a nice crunch to it. Even though the taste might remind you of winter, this dish also works perfectly well on a sunny summer evening!

Depending on which ingredients you use, your flavor profile can vary a lot. And since this recipe is super easy and quick, you won’t lose a lot of time to serve sudden guests a refreshing snack!

A quick glance at ingredients and tools

This one is pretty simple.

You need a few apples depending on how many toasts you want to make. Using one apple I was able to prepare two toasts while having a few slices left. You can also just put more apple slices on top of it, so you won’t be struggling with leftovers, or you use those scraps for my leftover-apple-recipes.

You will also need some kind of bread – I just took some simple toast slices. I could imagine this dish could also work with sweet soft bread as well.

Apricot jam, butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar complete the recipe. Don’t worry: It won’t take long in the oven so it is perfect for a quick snack!

Want more variety?

  • Use vanilla sugar for that extra sweet touch
  • You can vary with the jam: Maybe strawberry or quince jelly is more to your liking?
  • Sprinkling it with a little bit of finely grained salt might enhance the sweet flavor – don’t use too much though!
  • Topping it off with whipped cream creates a luxurious vibe around that dessert
  • Using a different kind of bread might give you unexpected flavors – just try around and find your favorite!

Ingredients

  • One Apple (fresh or older)

  • Two slices of toast

  • Unsalted butter at room temperatur

  • Powdered cinnamon

  • Brown sugar

  • Apricot jam

Directions

  • Wash your apples, half them and remove the core and stem

  • Now thinly slice the apples and put them into a bowl filled with water mixed with a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning. The water will also help soften up the apple which is an optional step – the result is worth it.

  • Prepare your toast by putting it onto the baking tray covered by parchment paper.

  • Spread the butter on top of them. You can use a little bit more since this will slightly soak the bread and enhance the flavor under the heat. Room-temperature butter will help you spreading it out without getting holes into your slices.

  • Now spread the jam carefully. Sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon on it. At last, arrange the apple slices on top of the toast nicely. If you want, you can sprinkle some more cinnamon on top of it.

  • Put the slices in the preheated oven at 230 °C / 446 °F for five minutes. (You can also experiment with the heat and time, as long as the toasts gets nice and crunchy and the apples soft.) Take them out and enjoy!
