Will definitely give this recipe a try because it's so adaptable. I love all the variations, so it can be adapted to what fruit is available seasonally. Thank you!
This was a very yummy recipe! I substituted sourdough for whole wheat bread (used 7 slices as it is thinner) and a cortland apple instead of golden delicious/granny smith. Definitely recommend serving with maple syrup! Thanks for the great recipe!
