French Toast Rolls with Apple-Cinnamon Filling

French toast is a classic breakfast dish in the US. But French toast is also known in many more countries, in different variations. In Germany we also call this dish “Armer Ritter (Poor Knight)”. Once the recipe was used to recycle the remnants of the valuable bread. The bread slices were turned in eggs and milk and baked in fat. These vegan French toast rolls with apple-cinnamon filling are a reinterpretation of the popular classic and perfect for breakfast, as a dessert or simply as a snack.

I found this recipe on the amazing blog of Bianca Zapatka and tried it out immediately.

Baked not Fried

The French toast rolls taste best warm and fresh from the oven. Oven? You have read correctly, these rolls are not fried in a pan, as is usual with French toast, but baked in the oven. This means they contain less fat and are healthier. Besides, the preparation only takes 20 minutes and you only need standard ingredients, which you probably have in your pantry anyway.

The preparation is super simple. On the pictures above you can see the preparation step by step. Simply cut the edges off the toast (1), roll the slices flat with a rolling pin (2) and spread the slices thinly with vegan butter or margarine (3). Cut the apples into small pieces and bring to the boil with water, starch, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. The filling is then spread on the toast slices (4) and the toasts are rolled up (5). Then roll the rolls in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon (6) and bake them in the oven until they are crispy.

These rolls are perfect for breakfast or served with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream for dessert.
