My whole family loves this recipe. I do make it a little bit differently. First, I tear up 12 slices of cinnamon swirl bread instead of the French bread and put into the 13x9 pan then I pour the cream mixture over the bread and stir until the bread soaks it up. Then I bake it in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, or until it is crisp. It is sooo yummy! I often make up a few and keep them uncooked in the freezer. When I am ready to use one, I pull it out and let it thaw and bake as normal! We have it every Christmas morning.
The french toast had a great flavor. Next time I might add a little Grand Marnier too! I would definately suggest that you whisk the liquid mixture in a small bowl first, THEN put it in the 9x13 pan so the bread can soak it up. I made a big mess trying to blend it in the shallow pan.
This is awesome!! Follow the directions and this will be the best french toast you will ever eat. I mixed the liquid ingredients in a jelly roll pan and the sugar easily disolved with no mess. I then put the bread, which I let sit out sliced overnight, right in the liquid mixture in my jelly roll pan. Make sure you cut the bread in thick slices and let it soak for the full 5 minutes, if you don't the orange flavor doesn't infuse very well. My kids, 4 & 3, both ate THREE pieces of this french toast they loved it that much. I was able to cook the whole loaf of bread on my electric griddle.
This french toast was awesome for a nice change from the ordinary!! My husband loved it as well as my 1 yr old (very picky) daughter!! I froze the few slices we had leftover and heated them in the microwave for my daughter to have for a quick breakfast during the week. Very Good--thanks for the recipe!
This is a good french toast but does not taste much different than my usual with the exception of orange. The orange taste if very light and gives this a unique flavor. I used maple syrup rather than the powdered sugar and did not let my bread "soak" in the mixture. I dipped the bread in just enough to coat well and then fried it. Thanks for sharing.
