      I'm in agreement with Charlotte J! This is a 10-star recipe!!! I used the Grand Marnier and let these stand for about 4 hours. The subtle taste of the Grand Marnier combined with the orange 'bits' are a total delight. This is now my favorite French Toast recipe ever, and I can't wait to serve this to guests. Thanks Bev!!

      This is a 10 STAR recipe!! We used the orange juice in making this today. We really liked the flavor that the orange juice gave this. You don't even need maple syrup with this. But if you use it just put a drizzle on so you don't miss the wonderful flavor of this toast! SIL gave us some oranges she brought back from Texas so I used the zest form those. DD has requested this to be served here at her post prom breakfast when she has her group of friends over that night/morning. Bev, thank you for sharing this recipe!! Made for Zaar Tag 2007

      I loved this recipe :) It's a nice twist to the original french toast recipe. I used brioche instead of french bread. I soaked the brioche slices right before I baked them. Brioche texture is light, and would be too soggy if I soaked overnight. Also, instead of Grand Marnier, I used Cointreau (orange flavored liqueur). Thank you for a great recipe.
