“From Martha Stewart. That woman sure knows how to make a delicious french toast! I have changed her recipe to omit some unneeded calories and fat. It is the best french toast our family has ever had, and our guests all agreed! I make this on a Sunday morning if we still have extra challah left over.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together eggs, milk, juice, vanilla, liquor, sugar, zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Place bread in a shallow baking dish large enough to hold bread slices in a single layer.
  3. Pour egg mixture over bread; soak 10 minutes.
  4. Turn slices over (Carefully) and soak 5-10minutes more, until soaked through.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 deg F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet, and set aside.
  6. Heat canola oil (with some butter if so wish) in a skillet over medium heat.
  7. Fry half the bread slices until golden brown, around 3 minutes per side.
  8. Transfer to wire rack; place in oven while cooking remaining bread.
  9. Wipe skillet and repeat with fresh oil/butter and bread.
  10. Keep in oven until ready to serve.
  11. Serve with dusted powdered sugar and maple syrup (I like fresh berries on top, too).
