Directions

  1. Put the eggs, egg whites, orange juice, confectioners' sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Wisk until well mixed.
  3. Spread 1/3 cup of cornflakes on the center of a piece of plastic wrap.
  4. Dip a slice of bread quickly into the egg mixture, coating both sides.
  5. Place bread onto the cornflakes.
  6. Use a fork and press the top of the bread lightly to embed the cornflakes into the underside.
  7. It should be solidly coated.
  8. Set the bread slice aside, cornflake side down.
  9. Working quickly, repeat the dipping process with the remaining slices of bread, using about 1/3 cup of cornflakes per slice.
  10. Divide the butter between 2 large nonstick griddles or skillets.
  11. Melt over medium heat until it is hot.
  12. Transfer the slices, cornflake side down on the griddles.
  13. Cook until both sides are browned, about 4 minutes each side.
  14. (Lacking sufficient cooking surface, you can dip the slices and coat them with cornflakes as batches are cooked, keeping thte cooked slices warm in a preheated 200 degree oven.) Serve hot, cornflake side up.
  15. Lightly sieve confectioners' sugar over the toast.
  16. Garnish the plate with strawberries and orange segments.
