French toast is one of those things that is so simple to make, but yet it tastes so decadent. We tend to save it for a special occasion. I think that with all the craziness that we have experienced these past couple of years, it’s time to live a little. Eat the French toast! Don’t save it for a special occasion. Heck, have a side of bacon while your at it!

Hey, I’m all about eating healthy but sometimes you just gotta splurge. Making this Orange Cardamom French Toast is a great place to start.

How to make Orange Cardamom French Toast

  • Start with a nice loaf of brioche. I used these brioche baguettes. Slice into thick pieces. You want them to be thick enough so they don’t fall apart when soaking up the egg mixture.
  • In a bowl whisk the eggs together until well blended, then whisk in the remaining ingredients.
  • Heat up the butter in a skillet, not too hot though, you don’t want it to burn.
  • dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides. Let it sit there a minute to soak up the yummy custard.
  • Carefully place the soaked bread in the pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. Cook until golden brown and then flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side.
  • Be sure not too cook too fast or the inside will be raw.
  • Remove from the pan and place on a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and a bit of orange zest.
  • Serve with warm maple syrup.
