Delicious! We loved this rich, eggy French toast. We enjoyed the subtle orange flavor which really put it over the top. I used homemade Portuguese sweet bread which had lemon zest in it and added to the citrus in this French toast. I baked it in a 9x13" pan for 45 mins. and served it dusted with powdered sugar and warm maple syrup. **Made for 2016 Culinary Quest for Pi Rho Maniacs - Azores Islands**

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange rind in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Cut the bread into seven or eight slices and lay them overlapping in a large baking dish.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, covering every slice.
  4. The bread should not be entirely submerged though; the higher parts should become toasted and crispy.
  5. Dot the bread with the butter. Bake the French toast in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the custard is set.
  6. Serve immediately.
