INGREDIENTS
8 slices bread (white or brown)
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 apple
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp slivered almonds, toasted
2 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3 tsp sugar or to taste

PREPARATION
Peel the apple and slice it as thin as possible. Put it into 1/2 cup water and boil with 1 teaspoon of sugar. When the apples are soft and mashy, set aside to cool.

In a bowl, beat up the eggs. Add the milk, stewed apples and any remaining syrup, the remaining sugar to taste and the vanilla. Mix thoroughly.

Place the bread in a flat baking dish that has been lightly greased. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and if necessary turn the bread slices over to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or if possible even overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.

Pre-heat you oven to 170°C or 350°F. Put generous dollops of butter all over the top. Sprinkle with the nutmeg and cinnamon powders. Sprinkle the almond slivers. Bake, uncovered, for about 25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

Cut into smaller squares when done and serve hot.

    Tip : want to get more sinful? Fry the squares of bread instead of baking.
