Caramel Apple Stuffed French Toast

This recipe for caramel apple French toast is what happens when I’m walking through the grocery store to pick up milk and bread. It never fails, I stop by my favorite grocery store to pick up a couple of things, and then somehow I end up needing assistance to the car with all of my goodies. As I was strolling the bread aisle, my eyes fell on caramel apple swirl bread. Being an avid lover of all things caramel, my mind immediately went into full swing wondering what I could make with my find.

Stuffed French Toast is Breakfast Comfort Food

French toast immediately came to mind, but, wanting to explore an overnight stuffed french toast, I made my way to the baking aisle and I saw caramel apple pie filling. Well, there it was, a match made in heaven. I developed this overnight baked French toast recipe for my family, and I’m delighted to share it with you, too. I enjoy this french toast as is without syrup, and my family really loves a dollop of whipped cream on the side. Either way, it’s a breakfast dish perfect for those special occasion mornings.

Tips for Making Overnight Caramel Apple French Toast

  • While I make this with caramel apple pie filling, if you’re unable to find it, regular apple pie filling will work. It will taste more like apple pie, which isn’t a bad thing at all. If you’d like to make your own, the filling for my caramel apple turnovers will work beautifully.
  • The same goes for the bread. Any similar cinnamon flavored bread will work. Cooking is often about improvising, and this dish is very forgiving.
  • This stuffed french toast is very rich. I recommend that you cut it into squares then the squares into triangles to serve.

  • 1 16 oz loaf caramel apple swirl bread i.e. Pepperidge Farm
  • Filling:
  • 1 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 21 oz can caramel apple pie i.e. Comstock
  • Custard:
  • 1 pint half & half
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Crumb topping:
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 Tbsp cold butter


  • Spray a 13 x 9 inch baking with cooking spray. Arrange 6 slices of bread side by side on the bottom of the dish.
  • Mix together the softened cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until fully blended. Spread over bottom layer of bread slices.
  • Roughly cut the apple pieces in apple pie filling into bite size chunks. Spread evenly over cream cheese layer. Arrange remaining 6 slices of bread on top.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together half and half, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg until combined. Pour evenly over bread. Be patient, gradually pouring to allow time for the custard to soak into the bread.
  • Use spoon to gently press the bread into the custard, and repeat until all of the custard has been added. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • To prepare: Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Remove the french toast from the refrigerator and allow to warm to room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  • To make the topping: Using a fork or pastry blender, cut the cold butter into the brown sugar and flour until blended, then mix in the pecans.
  • Crumble the topping over the top and bake for 45-48 minutes until golden and puffy.
  • Let stand 5 minutes then serve. May serve with pure maple syrup or a dollop of fresh whipped cream, if desired.
