Here is a new recipe to make your stomach growl…

French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Orange Sugar

French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Orange Sugar with Orange Marmalade Syrup

It is a wonderful twist on french toast with layers of favors.

Hope you enjoy!



1 loaf of French Bread (you could use Challah Bread too), slice on the bias (at an angle)

1/3 Cups Sugar

1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Zest from one large Orange

1 Cup Maple Syrup

1/4 Orange Marmalade

9 eggs

3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream

1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 Cup Maple Syrup

1/4 Cup Orange Marmalade

Butter or non-stick spray


Heat Griddle or non-stick pan.

Mixย Sugar,ย 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and zest in small bowl.


ย Set aside. Mix eggs, heavy cream, 3 Tablespoons ground cinnamon and vanilla in a wide dish (I use a deep dish pie dish). Set aside. In a microwave safe dish, mix 1 cup of maple syrup and orange marmalade. Microwave 30 seconds at a time until warm. Don’t over heat. Stir and set aside.


Coat griddle or pan with butter or non-stick spray. Dip slice in egg mixture and flip. Before you remove it, sprinkle the top with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Remove and place sugar side down on the pan or griddle. Repeat to fill pan or griddle. Watch closely. When the sugar caramelizes and side is golden brown, flip and brown the other side. Remove and repeat.


Serve with warm Maple and Orange Marmalade Syrup.

    Mom used to make a simpler version of this at least once a week when I was growing up. You are the first I have seen to realize that it must be French or Italian bread. In Texas, at least, they use that soft white bread. She used to wait to have stale French bread, saying that it soaked up more of the liquid and tasted better. Have you noticed that?… Off to locate a decent loaf of bread. — Aggie

  28. Thank you! I love using French bread to make French Toast. I also like Challah bread too because it is a more eggy bread. I am going to make a new recipe using a different bread soon. So stay tune! Yes, I agree with mom, stale bread is great for french toast!

  48. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. Itโ€™s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  49. Aw that is just the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me. Thank you so much! You have made my day!
