Recipe by Ms. Baker
This is an amazing spin on french toast that can either be a rich and tasty breakfast or an indulgent dessert. This requires overnight preparation, so the time does not reflect that. Oh, but these are so worth it! The credit for this recipe goes to Marc Murphy. Yet another wonder pulled from the pages of one of my many newlywed magazines. MMMmmmm...

- 10 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup brandy

- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 2 cups sugar
- 6 slices bread, day old with crusts cut off (thick sliced)
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 dulce de leche
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream

- Add bread and let soak in the fridge overnight.
