Serves : servings 
Preparation time : 35 minutes
Total Time : 3 hr

Ingredients : 
French Toast
- 10 cups French or challah bread (the bread will be cubed 3/4-inch)
- 8 eggs
- 1 pint half-and-half
- 8 tbsp milk
- 5-6 tbsp light brown sugar (packed)
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (ground)

Apple Pecan Filling
- 8 tbsp softened butter
- 3 apples, ( they will be peeled and coarsely chopped in pieces with the size of 3/4-inch)
- 16 tbsp light brown sugar (packed)
- 1 tsp cinnamon (ground)
- 1 cup pecans (coarsely chopped)

Topping
- Sugar (powdered) (Maple syrup  or salted caramel topping can be used as a replacement)

Preparation Method :
1) The oven will be preheated to 300 degrees F/ 149 degrees C.

2) The bread cubes will be baked in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes (place the bread cubes on a cookie sheet). Stop the baking process when the bread cubes are dry.

3) Fold a foil into thirds and line sides of a slow cooker (4 or 5 quart). Grease with cooking spray.

4) The French Toast ingredients will be beaten in a bowl. Fold in bread cubes to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes and fold from time to time.

5) 2 tbsp of butter will be melted in a skillet. Stir in apples and cook for 5 minutes. In a different bowl, add 6 tbsp butter and the remaining Apple-Pecan Filling ingredients and mix well until crumbly.

6) Transfer half of the bread mixture (approx. 4 cups) into the slow cooker. Place half of the apples over the bread mixture. Half of the brown sugar mixture will be sprinkled over the apples. Repeat this layering.

7) Cover and cook for 150 to 180 minutes on low heat. Stop the cooking process when the temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Make sure the center is set.

8) The foil will be removed and powdered sugar will be sprinkled before serving. The French toast can be served with syrup.

** You can use Cortland apples or Granny Smith/ Braeburn/ Rome Beauty apples.
** I would recommend you to use an oval slow cooker. Make sure the toast will not get overcooked. The foil will prevent it from browning too fast.
