Revised September 10. Original recipe comes from Williams & Sanoma however I have made modifications to simplify. Great light orange flavor. Also a great way to put my culinary torch to work!

This was good French Toast but I found the orange flavor to be a bit too light. I was hoping for something more flavorful. I did not use Grand Marnier which may have made a difference ... I'll try that next time.
