A few years ago, at the age of 50, I decided to teach myself to cook. I made this French toast that my mother would serve with grilled ham and sweet warm maple syrup. I was so pleased with the results, I've been cooking ever since!


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 slices day-old bread


  1. In a bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, sugar, orange peel, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Soak bread for 2 minutes per side. Cook on a greased hot griddle until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
