This is a tasty twist on French toast. The crushed corn flakes add a nice crunch. The orange zest is key to adding a perfect hint of citrus zing.

  • 1 loaf Challa or Brioche (appx 1 lb)
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups corn flakes, coarsely crushed
  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Maple syrup

    In a shallow dish, whisk together half and half, sugar, cinnamon, salt, orange zest, and eggs. Put cornflakes into another shallow dish.
  • 3
    Working with 1 piece of challa at a time, dip in the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak for 10 seconds on each side, then coat in the cornflakes. Transfer to a sheet tray lined with waxed paper.

    Heat 2-3 tbsp. of the butter in a 10 inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until just foaming. Transfer 3-4 slices of Challa to the pan and cook, turning once, until both sides are golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Divide the french toast between 2 serving plates. Wipe out skillet, add remaining butter, and repeat process.
