Servings 8 servings


  • 8 slices brioche toast bread cut into 1-inch thick slices
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp. orange zest (approximately the zest of 1 small orange)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup Florida's Natural No Pulp Orange Juice
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. Unsalted butter

Suggested Toppings

  • Maple syrup
  • Fresh fruits
  • Cinnamon sugar


  • In a bowl, mix the eggs well with the heavy cream, vanilla sugar, orange juice, and orange zest.
  • Place a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat, and melt 1 tbsp. of butter in the pan.
  • Drench each piece of French toast into the custard mixture on both sides, until moist throughout but not soggy. Add directly into the hot skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown on the outside and fully cooked through.
  • Remove from the pan and serve topped some maple syrup and fresh fruit. You can also sprinkle a dash of cinnamon sugar on top if you like.


  • Mix your egg wash thoroughly to avoid any egg whites congealing on the toast.
  • Use a preheated griddle or pan so you can get a nice crisp on the French toast.
  • Stick to a medium heat when cooking this Orange French Toast. Too high and you’ll
    burn the coating, too low and the bread will dry out.
  • It's best to use a big griddle or pan so you can cook multiple pieces at once.
  • Wipe down the pan between batches and reapply the butter. This way you'll avoid coating your toast in burnt butter!
  • Do not make the slices thicker than 1 inch—if the bread is too thick, you will be left with a raw center.
