Once you try this oven-baked French toast, you’ll never make it the old way again. On a griddle or in a skillet, French toast must be made in batches. Baking allows you to cook all eight pieces at once.

Yields/Serves: 
4
servings
Ingredients: 
Nonstick cooking spray
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices French bread
1/4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. In a pie plate combine eggs, LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk, vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for about 1 minute per side. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in a 450 degree F oven about 6 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Turn bread over and bake 5 to 8 minutes more or until slightly puffed.
  4. For orange syrup, stir together orange peel, orange juice, honey, cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  5. Sift powdered sugar over toast, if desired. Serve with warm orange syrup.
