Author Notes

I wanted to call this Mexican toast but seeing as “French” Is a misnomer too I opted for “Pan.”
The sauce is a combination of maple syrup, orange juice and spice that is a real zing to the palate. If the amount of butter concerns you, you could either use something lower fat or just eat half a serving. —Punk Kin

What You'll Need
  • For the Toast:
  • 4 slices bread ( a chewy bread such as sour dough will get crisper)

  • The Sauce
  • 4 tbs. Orange juice
  • 4 tbs maple syrup

  4. Stir to coat apples for about one minute.
