Orange and Brandy French Toast Recipe


12 to 16 slices slightly stale French bread, or 8 slices regular bread

5 eggs

2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp brandy, or 1½ tsp vanilla extract

grated rind of 1 large orange

butter for frying

warm pure maple syrup Cooking Instructions:

Beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl. Add the milk, sugar, orange rind, cinnamon, and brandy, and mix well. Pour into a shallow dish like a pie plate if your bowl doesn’t have a good flat bottom.

Add a few slices of bread and let soak, turning occasionally, for at least 5 minutes if it’s French bread, or 2 minutes if it’s regular sliced bread.

Put a little butter in a large skillet and heat over medium heat until hot. It should sizzle when a drop of water is flicked on it. Fry the bread on both sides until golden brown and piping hot.

Serve immediately.
