Step 1

Lay the bacon slices out flat in a single layer on a large baking sheet and place another baking sheet on top which fits inside the main one to keep the slices flat and bake in a 220C oven until the bacon is sizzling.

Step 2

Remove the top tray and brush the bacon with the maple syrup and return to the oven and cook until golden.

Step 3

For the apples, melt the butter and sugar in a wide based pan over a moderate heat and when it has melted add the apple pieces and when they are golden brown on one side turn over and repeat.

Step 4

For the French toast cut out 12cm circles or thereabout from the bread.

Step 5

If you don't have cutters use a bowl as a template.

Step 6

Lightly beat the eggs and to them add the cream, sugar and vanilla in a shallow dish and soak the bread in this for at least 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 7

Heat a wide based pan to moderate and add the butter and then when melted, the soggy bread and cook until golden brown, turn and cook the other side.

Step 8

To serve, place the bread on plates, followed by slices of the apple and then the bacon slices and drizzle over the remaining sauce from the apples.

Another great Sunday Brunch. Pat it seems I am joining you nearly every Sunday for Brunch and enjoying every bite of your recipes. I didn't cut them in circles but otherwise followed the recipe.I cut back on the bacon but had 3 slices of French Toast_ it was so good. The apples give it that special, extra, flavour boost. This will be made again but I will cut my serving back to 2 slices.

I loved this recipe, it was so good. Easy to make with wonderful results. The bacon was crisp, the apples tender and the french toast was light, tender and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing. Made FYC tag game.
