This recipe uses French bread and grated orange peel to create thick slices of French Toast that have a subtle hint of orange. 


The maple whip cream plays well with the orange and the thicker slices of toast. This is a really great special occasion breakfast or brunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf soft French bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 dashes cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tbsp orange peel fresh grated

Whip Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Start by whisking the eggs, milk, cinnamon, salt and orange peel together in a large bowl. Cut the bread into inch to inch and half slices. If you want to be fancy cut them on a bias for a great presentation.

  2. To make the topping, use a mixer to whip the heavy cream, sugar, and maple syrup together until it has started to come together into thick peaks.
  3. To cook the French Toast heat a large skillet or similar pan on medium high heat. Dip the pieces of bread into the batter, flipping them over to coat both sides. When you take them out of the batter, hold them over the bowl for a second to get rid of any excess batter. 


    The best way to cook these is in batches with each piece going immediately from the batter to the pan.

  4. Cook each piece for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until they reach a nice golden brown.
  5. Serve with maple syrup and whip cream.

Recipe Notes

If you're cooking these for a big group, work in batches by placing the cooked pieces on a baking sheet in a warm oven while you're cooking additional pieces. Also, the whipped cream can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge if it's covered.
