This is another brunch recipe that I tried this week. Each week I try a different one instead of having the same cooked breakfast!

This one is easy and does not take a long time to prepare. As with all my recipes, you can substitute ordinary sugar for the less refined coconut sugar that I mostly use.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes plus 15 minutes standing
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

1 large apple - I used a Granny Smith
1 tsp butter, melted
½ tsp coconut sugar
Bit of cinnamon
½ cup milk
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp extra coconut sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 very thick slices of old bread - I used a brioche roll
1 tbsp butter
Icing sugar (optional)

Peel, core, and slice the apple - I always use this handy corer for apples!


Cook the apple slices in 1 tsp of the melted butter over a medium heat. Cook till they are soft, adding a bit of water if needed.

Drain the apples and add ½ tsp coconut sugar and a bit of cinnamon.

Mix the milk, egg, vanilla, coconut sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Cut a pocket into the thick bread slices, taking care not to cut all the way through, but cutting fairly close to the edges.

Put the cooked apple mixture into the middle of the cut bread slices.


Put this into a bowl and pour the liquid mixture over it. Let it stand for about 15 minutes.

Heat a large frypan on a low heat and melt the butter.

Add the stuffed bread and cook for about 7 minutes on each side, taking care when turning over.


Dust with icing sugar (optional).
