      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.

      In a 9x13 pan combine the orange juice, heavy cream, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and white sugar.

      This french toast, is a true masterpiece. Loved all the flavors, so happy that you could taste the cinnamon, nutmeg, orange and cream. What a great french toast this was, was delicious. Made the french toast with calabrese bread (what I had on hand), made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Garnished mine with icing sugar while the dh had warmed maple syrup on his. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. Kudos for making it into my Favorites Cookbook for 2014.

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