Wonderful twist for French Toast!!!! While the milk, vanilla, zest, spices and fresh OJ were warming, my house smelled fantastic, almost like a perfume, it was amazing!!! I used two day old Cuban bread and added it to the milk mixture, which really thickened once it cooled. I was worried that the bread would fall apart after soaking that long in the milk mixture, but it didn't due to the thickness of it, so very easy to dip it in the eggs to coat. Just loved this Spanish Toast, great flavors and it really was a crispy outside with a very light and tender inside. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

Awesome french toast cookingpompom. I enjoyed this lovely recipe for breakfast today. I used a really nice portugese bread for this dish. The house smelled excellent while cooking the milk and other ingredients. This recipe creates a beautiful, light, soft, tender and fluffy breakfast treat that has amazing flavor. Love the addition of orange juice and zest in this dish. I ground my spices so they were fresh resulting in nice subtle flavorings. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again.
