A Redmond Multicooker recipe.
I’m a big fan of French Toast. That slightly crisper outside encasing a creamy custardy interior and the whole thing sprinkled with icing sugar and drizzled with maple syrup. Sugar overload, I know, but for a lazy Sunday morning brunch, this ranks pretty highly.
Last weekend I treated my family to something a little bit different – an apple and cinnamon French toast casserole cooked in my Redmond Multicooker.
I started with half a loaf of thick sliced bread that needed using up and added a chopped up Bramley apple that staff at our village shop had given me as it was unsaleable and destined for their bin. They reckoned that I’d be able to do something with it.
The Redmond Multicooker, in case you didn’t already know about it, is an all-in-one kitchen appliance. It’s a bread machine, a yogurt maker, a rice maker, a slow cooker, a frying pan, a steamer and a deep fryer. The model I have, the RMC-M4502E, has 34 programmes – 16 automatic and 18 manual. It can be used to cook meats, vegetables, porridge, soups, stews, pies, bread and to bake cakes and a wide range of sweet desserts.

The Redmond Multicooker RMC-M4502E retails for £105, but it’s currently on offer for only £55.
It also makes a rather wicked French toast casserole. The slow cooking of this recipe means that I have time to nip out for a quick mountain bike ride while it bakes away (before anyone else in the house is up!), and I get to come home and breakfast is made.
As I mentioned earlier, I love both icing sugar and maple syrup on my French toast. I think it pairs really well with the soft and creamy cinnamon and vanilla custard centre and slightly crunchy outer. The sultanas are optional.

Apple & Cinnamon French Toast Casserole
- 260 grams thick sliced leftover bread crusts removed, if desired
- 110 grams Bramley apples peeled and chopped into 5 mm dice
- 50 grams sultanas optional
- 6 large eggs lightly beaten
- 400 ml full fat milk
- 80 ml pure Canadian maple syrup plus extra to serve
- 60 grams soft brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 30 grams unsalted butter plus extra, to dot
- 20 grams demerara sugar
- icing sugar to sprinkle
- Cut bread into one-inch cubes, removing the crusts, if desired (this will give a creamier centre). Place into the non-stick bowl of your Redmond Multicooker.
- Sprinkle over the Bramley apple pieces and the sultanas, if using.
- In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Whisk well until combined and then gently stir in the melted butter.
- Gently pour this mixture over the bread cubes and stir to mix, taking care not to break up the bread pieces.
- Sprinkle with the demerara sugar and dot with a further 10 grams of butter.
- Select MULTI-COOK on your Redmond Multicooker. Set the temperature for 40 C and the time for one hour. Cook until the program finishes.
- Select CAKE and set the time for 50 minutes. Cook until the end of the program.
- When the timer has finishes you'll notice the casserole is risen and puffy. Leave with the lid off for a few minutes until the casserole settles and cools a bit before transferring, upsidedown to a serving platter.
- Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve, warm, with extra maple syrup and some fresh fruit.
