Orange French Toast Bake Recipe

Orange French toast bake is a new take on a breakfast staple with mild citrus flavor, great for serving a big gathering. Instead of cooking French toast, everything comes out of the oven hot and ready to serve.  


– 4 large egg – 1/2 cup milk – 1/4 cup white sugar – 1/4 cup Triple Sec or other orange liqueur – 1/2 fresh orange, zested and juiced – 1 teaspoon orange extract – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg – 12 slices cinnamon raisin bread – 1 tablespoon confectioners sugar, or as needed (optional) – 2 tablespoons warm maple syrup, or as needed



Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. To prevent bread from sticking, gently butter two large baking pans or line with parchment paper coated with cooking spray.
