French Toast Surprise

This is another way to prepare French Toast (a favourite of everyone, young and old both)..This is an adult version.


  • 1 day old French loaf, cut into 12, one inch thick slices
  • 3/4 cup marmalade
  • 4 large eggs beaten
  • 2 tbsp. cream
  • 2 tbsp. Triple Sec
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1  1/2 tsp.  grated orange rind
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • Crisco oil
  • Icing sugar

Make a pocket slit in each of the bread slices.  Fill with 1 tbsp. marmalade.

In a separate bowl combine the cream, eggs, liqueur, maple syrup, grated orange rind and nutmeg, and pour into a shallow dish.

Dip each slice into the egg mixture and let it soak through.  Heat the griddle with a small layer of oil and fry the bread anywhere from 3-5 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from heat and sprinkle liberally with icing sugar. Two slices per plate, and cut each slice in half diagonally.  Spread these out  on the plate in an attractive fashion.

Serve with a slice of cold watermelon or canteloupe, glass of orange juice and a cup of coffee.  Yummy!

This will serve 6
