I cut this by 1/3 but found that 1 egg wasn't quite enough to cover my 2 pieces bread so my second piece was less eggy and more crispy from the syrup mixture on the bottom of the pan...I have to say I actually liked the 2nd piece better...it had a sweet crunchy coating that was divine..to up the orange flavour based on other reviewers I also added some orange extract. Very much enjoyed this decadent brekky. Thanks for posting!
Woah, BABY!!! This is the best French toast I've ever had! I had my doubts when it came out of the oven, as it was pale. But once you flip it over and see the crunchy goodness - oh my! Made it exactly as written, using a baguette that had been sitting unused on the counter for two days. We sliced the bread 1/2 inch thick then let it sit in the egg mix for about ten minutes so it would absorb, then baked per the recipe for the full 20 minutes. I loved it plain, but then drizzled some of Emeril Lagasse's Cajun Chocolate Syrup on it and wow, it took it to another level! Thanks Boomette, for another great ZWT recipe!
This is a tasty French toast! The orange flavor is nice. It made a great breakfast! Thanks!
Used some wheat bread with this, and other than using 4 tablespoons butter, and doubling the honey this made for quite a morning treat. Great addition to the eggs and bacon this morning. Great Recipe here !! Made for Recipe Swap# 47.
Nice french toast. I cut it back to 2 servings and made as directed. I agree with Baby Kato - I think that some orange rind would really be a great addition here. Thanks for sharing. Made for Tic Tac Toe Spring 2010.
I also cut this recipe by 1/3 & made it with a nutty, whole grain bread, which combined nicely with the cinnamon & orange to produce a very satisfying breakfast! Thanks for sharing this great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Nice french toast Boomie. It was very easy to throw together and was done very quickly. Made as directed. I didn't add any additional honey, I found it sweet enough. I would have liked more orange & cinnamon flavor, next time I would add orange rind to the mix. I garnished with cinnamon and icing sugar. Thanks for sharing.
This was different but pretty good! Added a little vanilla.
I made this with the 2 TB butter and whole wheat bread and wow was it tasty! It was good enough to eat alone - no syrup required! I also liked the "crunch" this had (I baked mine 20 minutes). I can never achieve such a nice texture when I make regular french toast in a pan (it always seems to be limp), so I was super excited with this recipe. Only change I think I'll make next time is to bump up the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon. Other than that, super recipe; so cool that everyone gets to eat at the same time, too!
Good! A nice variation of French toast. I increased the recipe to use a pan full of baguette slices: 4T butter, 4T honey, 1 t cinnamon, 3/4 c orange juice, 5 eggs. Added the salt but shouldn't have since I used salted butter. Next time I'll cut the butter to 3T and add 1/2 t orange extract. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
