Bruleed Orange French Toast

Our bruleed French toast befits a special brunch. The bread is first soaked in an orange-infused egg mixture and cooked until golden and crisp. Then the slices are sprinkled with sugar and caramelized with a kitchen torch. A drizzle of maple syrup adds the finishing touch.

christmas breakfast
December 26, 2012
I always enjoy trying something new..saw this recipe and thought it would make a great addition to our christmas breakfast...extra special french toast. I followed the recipe exactly except for the brioche bread because no stores carried that in our area this time of year (searched everywhere) a baker suggested I try Challah instead. The final result was good, however our family concluded that we LOVED the french toast better BEFORE you "bruleed" it at the end. The additional sugar was just too sweet for our family. I will make this again and just skip the last step, and serve it right out of the electric skillet. Next time I am going to try this recipe on my cast iron griddle instead, since I will be skipping the bruleed topping, this should give the toast a cruncher exterior.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: too sweet with the sugar topping skip bruleeding

Amazing flavor!
May 22, 2011
This recipe is absolutely amazing. The flavor combinations of the Grand Marnier, orange zest and brown sugar mixed with the creaminess of the heavy cream make this french toast one of the best I have tasted. This french toast is plenty sweet without the maple syrup, so be sure to taste it before adding it. Our kitchen torch was not working so we used the broiler on high and it did the trick. I highly recommend this recipe!
Pros: Yield, Quick, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again

I didn't have a bottle of Grand Marnier, but it still turned out very good. I could only imagine how it would taste with it, I would probably be on a food coma after eating it. What I love about it is how beautiful the flavors blend together, with the orange zest and cream. I also love how you use a torch to melt the sugar, giving it that candy like texture. I've made it for the husband twice, and loves it. Now I need to impress my parents, sister and her children.
