About this recipe: A simple French toast recipe, with remarkable results. The trick is to soak the bread in the egg mixture overnight. Before baking, the slices of egg-soaked bread are scattered with orange zest and pecans.
This was a bit too bland. I made itr for Christmas brunch.....I did like the crispy texture however....I would recommend using a bit more spice such as cinnamon....probably personal preference - 01 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I served this as one of the dishes for a Sunday brunch this morning for 8 guests, and it was a success. I used skim milk, substituted Splenda for the sugar and cinnamon for the nutmeg, and sprayed the baking pan with PAM. I think a cinnamon raison bread would be yummy but as I try to eat whole grain products, I used whole wheat bread. I may add some raisons next time and make half with nutmeg to see which flavor we like best. My company had a choice of eating it plain (which was fine) or topping it with pourable Splenda, sugar, syrup, or fresh strawberries. - 25 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good for low fat. I used cooking spray instead of butter to grease the pan and it still tasted fantastic. - 24 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
