- Dazzling Grand Marnier French Toast from The Moss House
- French toast at its finest! Pre-baking some Hawaiian Bread or Challah Bread is the secret to a fat crisp slice of rich, orange-flavored French Toast. This recipe easily doubles, and is a favorite at the Moss House in Washington.
|Servings||Prep Time||Cook Time|
|4-5 people||20 minutes||10 minutes|
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 3/4 cup milk or 1/2 and 1/2
- 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.
