Simply awesome French Toast--the oj, orange rind, and spices provide amazing flavor (while adding little or no fat!)!! I scaled the recipe down to 2 servings; used a multi-grain bread (Milton's), 2 smallish eggs, non-fat milk, a packed and slightly rounded 1/2 teaspoon of finely grated orange rind, and half of the quantity of both milk and oj. And, since we have three orange trees in our backyard, I was able to use a fresh orange for the oj and orange rind--which was great! I have a feeling this is going to become the only French Toast recipe I ever make! Thanks so much for sharing it Missy Wombat!!
Excellent recipe. We like to have breakfast for dinner in my house so this was perfect with maple syrup and fruit salad! The orange flavor was really clear, but not overpowering. And the spices played up the orange flavor perfectly. I just used whole wheat bread too. Will make again, thanks for sharing!
Loved the orange tang in this recipe! I didn't have any orange rind so I omitted it. I also added 2 tbsp Splenda & might add a little vanilla next time. I used regular whole wheat bread & it worked fine. The spices are key-added such a bang! I'm planning on trying different flavor juices-like apple-to see if I can make this more versatile. But if anyone else has tried it & knows if it works or not-please let me know via this website! Thanks for sharing :-).

I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
