Golden French Toast

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chris Reynolds

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.

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.
