I found this recipe in a TOH flyer. The addition of cardamon to the recipe is what intrigued me. I just finished making this, and it was not as good as I thought it would be. I agree with the reviewer; it's no more than a 3-star recipe. There are so many excellent recipes on 'Zaar, that I doubt I will make this recipe again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 4 eggs
  • 12 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 14 cup butter
  • 12 slices day-old French bread (3/4-inch thick)


  1. In a bowl, combine orange juice, peel, eggs, and cardamom. Beat well.
  2. Melt butter in a 13x9x2" pan in the oven.
  3. Dip the bread on both sides in the egg mixture, place in a single layer in the pan.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, turning once.
  5. Serve with maple syrup.

This was okay. I'm used to milk in French Toast, so if I make this again I'll beat that in along with the batter. The orange juice and orange peel is really nice in this.
