Thanks for posting NR. Truth be told I didn't even get any nor did I get a picture. The two kids ate 3 pieces a piece and deemed it fantastic. They could taste the slight orangy flavor but the brown sugar was the key ingredient. They loved the consistency. The only problem DH and I didn't get any! We will definitely make again but two batches. We usually make these on a griddle but have to watch it and do the work. This way you just put it in the oven and go. Definitely a good breakfast treat for breakfast or breakfast for dinner. Enjoy! ChefDLH

Great standard recipe for Baked French Toast! I took it out of the oven prematurely, thinking it was ready (after 5 minutes on the second side), but it did need to stay in longer as specified so that the inside could cook through. I microwaved for 30 seconds after the fact and it was fine. I look forward to making this again!
