Overnight Apple French Toast!

Hey Down Home Friends,
What is not to love about brunch? In my house absolutely nothing. We love it all. I search high and low for good recipes for just brunch because we love it so much,. And my all time favorite brunch recipes are the recipes called make ahead. Oh, that for sure is my favorite kind. I'm a night owl so this type of recipe is such a good fit for me. It is late at night when my inner creative self starts to brew. I can dream some big dreams late at night and it is hard to shut down sometimes. And since I am a late night girl you can just imagine that I am not a morning person at all. So, this Gooseberry Patch recipe is perfect.
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. butter
2 T. light corn syrup
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
1/4-inch thick
3 eggs
1 c. milk
1 t. vanilla extract
9 slices day-old French bread
1 c. applesauce
10-oz. jar apple jelly
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. ground cloves
Combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until thick. Pour into an ungreased 13"x9" baking pan, arranging apple slices on top of syrup. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Dip French bread in egg mixture and arrange over apple slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking, and uncover. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top of the bread is browned. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until jelly is melted. Serve French toast with apple slices on top and spoon the warm sauce over the apples. Serves 6 to 8.

The french toast was already so good we didn't even bother to make the topping! And the best part is that I didn't have to do a thing but heat it up and enjoy!
