Kids In the Kitchen: Apple Pie French Toast #FoodieFriday

A few weeks ago I told you how I have the kids separated to help with each meal during the day. In that post I told you how I let Princess V smell the spices and pick some out to make Venice’s Chicken.  Today I’m excited to share an extremely easy, but very tasty French Toast recipe.

I created the Apple Pie French Toast one day when I realized too late we were out of cinnamon. I started going through the spice cupboard (yes I have a cupboard dedicated to spices), to see what in the world I could substitute, because of course I already had most of the mixture whipped up. It needed something!  I’ve tried a few different spices, but this recipe is by far my favorite on French Toast!

Of course here I’ll show you just how easy it is to get kids involved in the kitchen as well. Above you see my breakfast helper, Princess C flipping pancakes. A few pointers before you let your 5 year old near the stove

  • Talk to them about how hot the pan will be. Make sure they are aware of where their hands are at all times on the spatula so they don’t get too close to the hot stove.
  • If a slice of bread flops off the spatula onto the counter, or stove top, or half on half off, don’t let your child adjust it. 
  • Parental supervision should be used at all time when cooking with kids in the kitchen

Apple Pie French Toast

6-8 slices whole wheat bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp Apple Pie Spice*
In a shallow pan (we use our round cake pans), mix eggs and milk together until eggs are broken and well mixed with the milk. Add vanilla and stir some more. Last add the sugar and Apple Pie Spice. Stir some more, until the sugar and spice are mixed in. The spice will mostly stick to the top of the liquid, that is just fine. 
Heat a griddle, or frying pan to medium heat. Depending on your pan, you can use some Pam spray, or melt a little butter on the pan to help avoid the toast from sticking. 
Dip a slice of bread in the egg mixture, and turn coating both sides. Place on the hot griddle, and repeat with the rest of the bread until the griddle is filled. Cook approximately 3-5 minutes per side, or until bread is nicely browned and toasted on both sides. 
Enjoy with a little butter and maple syrup for a nice treat.
*Some spice substitutions we’ve tried and enjoyed are cinnamon, allspice, or pumpkin pie spice. Have fun mixing up your french toast!
We tend to hit a breakfast rut pretty frequently around here. Check out these fun and delicious breakfast recipes from last week’s party.

  1. These are very cute photos – seeing you kid cooking and I'd looooooove to taste this apple pie french toast 🙂
    Thank you for the party Adelina and have a wonderful weekend

    1. Wonderful memories aren't they? When I was in middle school, I was in charge of making breakfast every morning. Thank you for coming by!

    1. To be honest, I was pretty scared to let my kids help out in the kitchen, but I decided the learning was good for them. It's also allowed for some great quality time with them. Thank you for coming by!

  2. Great idea to get your kids started early! I did the same and now as teenagers sometimes they make entire meals for the family! So great that they love to cook (and they are boys!).

    Thanks for hosting!

    1. A love if something starts early on! That's awesome as boys that they'll cook up entire meals for the family. They'll make some girls very happy 😉

  3. Hi Adelina,
    Oh my, she is just adorable! Great recipe and great post! Have a fantastic week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
