Delicious and a great way to have French toast ready for everyone to eat at the same time while it's still fresh and warm. Really great recipe! My new go-to!

Although I cooked these on the griddle instead of baking in the oven, they were were so good! (I left out the butter and sprayed the griddle with nonstick spray.)

This was easy & delicious. My family loved it! I didn't have fresh oj, so I used Tropicana. I worked out fine. I also substituted cinnamon for the cardmom, because I didn't have it on hand.
