One of the best uses for Portuguese bread is in baked French toast. Because the bread is so light it soaks up a lot of the batter and becomes too fragile to pan-fry. So...baking is the answer. Serve the French toast with maple syrup.

  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange rind in a medium mixing bowl.

  • Cut the bread into seven or eight slices, and lay them, overlapping, in a large baking dish.

  • Pour the egg mixture over the bread, covering every slice. The bread should not be entirely submerged though; the higher parts should become toasted and crispy.

  • Dot the bread with the butter. Bake the French toast in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the custard is set. Serve immediately.
