Rich and yummy! I've been using this recipe for special occasion brunches and breakfasts for several years. It ALWAYS gets great reviews and requests for the recipe. I first ran across it in Sunset magazine years ago. I hope you enjoy it!

I use sliced french bread!This is the best French Toast ever. Sometimes I use pineapple juice instead of orange juice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut off the ends of the baguette a reserve for another use. Cut the remainder in 1/2 inch slices. Let them stand for at least 4 hours or overnight to dry.
  2. In a 9x13 pan combine the orange juice, heavy cream, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and white sugar.
  3. Place the bread slices in the pan, turning the slices until the liquid is absorbed.
  4. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium to medium high heat. Add bread slices and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Dust heavily with powdered sugar to serve.
  5. I always include maple or fruit syrup on the table.
  6. Heavenly way to start the day!
  7. Prep time doesn't include the bread drying step.
