Prep Time:20 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
|• 2 tbsp||melted butter|
|• 3/4 cup||milk or half and half|
|• 1 tsp||vanilla extract|
|• 1 tsp||Grand Marnier or orange extract|
|• 1 tsp||grated orange peel|
|• 2 tbsp||sugar|
|• 1/3 cup||flour|
|• 1/4 tsp||salt|
|• bit of||grated nutmeg|
|• 1 loaf||Hawaiian Bread|
Preheat oven to 325. Slice the Hawaiian Bread or Challah Bread into 1 inch slices and toast on a baking sheet with a wire rack and "dry" in the oven for four minutes then turn and do the other side. Set aside. The wonderfulness begins!
Whisk together the dry ingredients in a small bowl.
Whisk the egg with the melted butter, then the milk, extracts and peel. Add the dry to the wet ingredients. This makes a thin batter and clings perfectly to the toasty slices!
Preheat a large griddle or skillet for 5 minutes. Pour the "batter" into a 9x11 casserole dish. Soak the slices in the "batter" for a minute or two and flip them over.
Swirl a bit of butter on the hot griddle and lay the slices on to brown ( about 4 minutes per side).Sometimes I drizzle a bit more "batter" over the top. Keep warm in a 250 degree oven while you crisp up the rest of the slices.
Serve with some fresh fruit and maple syrup.
