Orange Vanilla French Toast

(4 servings)

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 8 slices bread (about 1-inch thick)
If you like a hint of citrus in your French toast, you'll probably like this. It's a very basic recipe. If you replaced the orange juice with more milk, you'd wind up with a traditional French toast recipe. To amp up the orange flavor, I'd consider adding a teaspoon or two of orange zest to the batter if I make this again. Like any French toast, success depends so much on the bread you use. I opted for a cinnamon raisin bread. I actually think it would have been better with a rustic white bread so the orange and vanilla didn't have to compete with other flavors. But all in all, I enjoyed this recipe. I'd give it a B or a B+. (This recipe was submitted in 2004. It was tested and photographed in October 2015.)

How To Make Orange Vanilla French Toast

Lightly beat eggs in a bowl. Add orange juice, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Mix.

Dip bread slices in egg mixture, turning to coat both sides.

Brown both sides on hot, pre-heated griddle that has been buttered or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Repeat with remaining slices of bread.

Lightly dust each serving with confectioner's sugar (if desired) and serve with softened butter and syrup.

This French toast has subtle orange flavor from orange juice that goes really well with a touch of vanilla in the recipe.
