Anyhow, I felt that this one needed to be shared - I've searched for and tried many recipes with the same types of ingredients, but none of them gave this result - it's a 'sweet' custard-y egg dish that's not too sweet! Between the sugar in the dish and the sugar on the dish, there's only 6Tbsp, which is about 1/3 cup - I cut the amount of sugar in half, and it was still tasty. My husband is a big 'meat & eggs' guy when it comes to breakfasts - the less sugar, the better. I, on the other hand, love waffles and pancakes, and all that accompanies them -syrup, jam, powdered sugar, brown sugar, fruit sauces.... Anyhow, this Super Apple Bake is a great compromise, because it's fairly hearty, it's a little fruity, and when you cut the sugar down and skip the syrup, it's really not sweet! If, however, you're like me, and you're into the sweet side of life, maple syrup or table syrup is a fantastic addition to this breakfast. Yum. I might make it again tomorrow morning. (when I cut the recipe in half this morning, it made a pleasant amount to be shared by two adults and 1 toddler.)
