For the French Toast:

  • 4 slices of gluten-free bread
  • 2 large Clover Sonoma Organic Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Clover Sonoma Organic Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Clover Sonoma Organic Butter for cooking

For the Apple Cinnamon Compote:

  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons Clover Sonoma Organic Butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (optional, for added sweetness)

Optional Toppings:

  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Whipped Cream



In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter.


Add the diced apple, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg to the saucepan. Stir to coat the apples evenly with the spices.


Cook the apples for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender and slightly caramelized.


If desired, add pure maple syrup for added sweetness and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.


Prepare the Gluten-Free French Toast: In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, ground cinnamon, and pure vanilla extract until well combined.


Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter.


Dip each slice of gluten-free bread into the egg mixture, ensuring it's coated on both sides.


Place the dipped bread slices on the hot skillet and cook until golden brown and slightly crispy, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.


Arrange the gluten-free French toast slices on serving plates.


Spoon the warm apple cinnamon compote over the French toast slices.


Optionally, drizzle with a little extra maple syrup for added sweetness.


Garnish with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
