ramblings from my little kitchen

Cinnamon Orange French Toast

on May 13, 2012

I whipped this up the other morning because Reese was having another non-eating day and I thought this would peak her interest.  I was right.  She ate a whole piece and some orange slices!  I used wheat bread so it had some health benefits.  You could use brioche or challa to make it fancier.  We all enjoyed it immensely.  It literally took as long to make it as it would to read the recipe.



  • 6 eggs
  • 2TBS heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • zest of one orange
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6-8 pieces of bread of your choice
  • butter (for cooking)
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 pkg cream cheese (room temp)
  • 1TBS sugar


Whisk eggs, heavy cream, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and egg whites together until well combined. place in a shallow dish and soak bread in the mixture. Put a pat of butter into a skillet over medium heat. cook soaked toast on each side for 3-4 minutes until lightly browned. put in a warm oven until all the pieces are cooked. whisk together cream cheese, marmalade and 1TBS sugar with electric mixer until a uniform consistency is achieved.  Serve french toast with marmalade cream and warm maple syrup.
